‎FYI, benchmark mentioned in the video.

Wouldn't a number of test machine ls on the Internet make more sense than flogging nginx locally on your network?

With VPS time being sold by the hour, seems to me you should get one VPS tester running acceptably, then clone a dozen and do your test. With SSD based VPS, you can literally clone one a minute.

You should configure worker_processes to use all cpu cores and disable
