Yes I do have  RAM of size : 1.5T and swap space of around 200G. It has been
observed that swap is not getting used in this case. But it seems either OS
is not clearing the RAM that fast or nginx is not able to control RAM as
mentioned in the nginx configuration file.
Could you please suggest what can be the possible solution for this issue.
Every time max_size is getting crossed by RAM even after mentioning it in
nginx config.
