Nginx Rate limiting for HTTPS requests

Thanks for responding Maxim. I understood what you are pointing at. Yes I
have taken care of time measurement. Actually my test runs for 60 seconds
and in total I expect 6000 requests returning 200 status with rate limit
configured at 100r/s. However I see 9000 requests returning 200 status which
means 150 req/sec.

Shall I expect that even for HTTPS, rate limiting should work as perfectly
as plain HTTP case. If yes, I am just wondering if there is something I am
missing while configuring Nginx rate limiting for HTTPS.
