That's the joy of machine translation :-)

I hope I didn't end up answering the wrong question.

Thanks for the pointer; I've had a read through it. It looks
generally good -- but it does show the thread_pool directive
at http level: possibly either that or the documentation at
http://nginx.org/en/docs/ngx_core_module.html#thread_pool should be
updated to be consistent?

I think the original poster has the answers wanted -- thread_pool goes
outside http, and probably isn't needed on FreeBSD for file reads --
so it all looks good.
