nginx proxy being slow

We are trying to act as a proxy for a site within the same DMZ. Things seem
to work fine, except when there is quite a heavy load. There are many CSS
assets that just hang upon retrieval. Sometimes the full page comes through;
sometimes just spins forever.
Server: nginx 1.6.1 running on Linux.
proxy_buffers 256 8k;
Under heavy loads, about 1500 requests a second, a page is not completely
sent back to the browser as some of the CSS resources taking anywhere from 2
- 10 seconds to return. It will just spin until eventually it gets sent
back. CPU and memory usage is not dramatically high. Smaller sites return
without any issue at all.
Do I have the buffering wrong or is there something else at play?
