Weird apache status values with nginx

Thanks for your explanation Maxim.

I think the results are not correct because I switch off nginx and
values come correct again. I swich on nginx and I get weird values. That
is why.

You said:

Any tip, clue or url to start investigating about this?

Thanks! I understand now!
