I suppose you are talking about the proxy_cache_path directive. Its docs
state you are defining the size of a *shared memory zone*, most probably
allocated by the master process at configuration loading time and then
accessible/accessed by workers when needed.

You will be able to make a conclusion by yourself. :o)
