Hi everyone,  

I’m trying to optimize mail-proxy. 
My performance test is 1 client sends many request to 1 nginx server.

This is my current settings:

worker_processes auto;
worker_rlimit_nofile  100000;

#error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log debug;
#error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log warn;
error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log crit;
events {
  worker_connections 1024;
  #worker_connections 4000;
  #multi_accept on;
  #use epoll;

mail {
  auth_http localhost:80/auth/smtp;
  proxy_pass_error_message on;
  proxy on;
  smtp_auth login plain;
  xclient   on;
  server {
      listen    25;
      protocol  smtp;
  server {
      listen    465;
      protocol  smtp;
      ssl       on;
      ssl_certificate      /etc/nginx/ssl/server.crt;
      ssl_certificate_key  /etc/nginx/ssl/server.key;

      ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:20m;
      ssl_session_timeout 180m;

      #ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
      #ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
      #ssl_dhparam /etc/nginx/cert/dhparam.pem;
      #ssl_stapling on;
      #ssl_stapling_verify on;
      #ssl_trusted_certificate /etc/nginx/cert/trustchain.crt;

Low cpu usage, but the performance result is not good.
Do yoy know how to take full advantage of nginx?

Thank you for your time.
