Dear Roman,

Thanks for your valuable response.
So ,is that means, If we optimize the parameter of the keep-alive to avoid keep-alive connection ? then we can avoid this kind of performance issue ?
Or if the mirror subrequest is slow than original subrequest, then we can't avoid this kind of performance issue ? Thanks in advance.

Normally, even the mirror environment can't process all the request in time. it's should not impact the nginx forward the request to the original environment. But we observed if the mirror environment can't process all the request, then the Nginx will fall in issue , and original environment can't feedback process result to client in time. Then from client side, it seems the Nginx is down. If you have faced same issue before ? any suggestion  ?
