I was reading an article on performance on the Nginx site: One thing mentioned was enabling
buffering on the access_log. 

However, the directive reference
( says
that the default buffer size is 64 KB. Does this mean that buffering is
enabled by default, with a size of 64 KB, or that if the buffer is enabled
without a specified size, it will be 64 KB?
