hi all!
i see ever increasing numbers for $connections_waiting in the status

nginx06% curl 'localhost/status'
Active connections: 480810
server accepts handled requests
 53456157 53456157 92142205
Reading: 5 Writing: 8435 Waiting: 471206
nginx06% sudo netstat -alpn | grep "^tcp" | wc -l

that looks fishy...

nginx version: nginx/1.11.5

any hints?
