The "least_conn" balancing method is equivalent to round-robin as
long as all configured upstream servers have equal number of
connections opened. That is, if you are seeing nginx is "doing
round robin", most likely this means that there isn't enough
active connections for least_conn to be different from
Note well that "number of connections" applies to a single nginx
worker process, and if there is more than one worker, least_conn
might not see all the connections (unless you've configured nginx
to share information about upstream servers between worker
processes, see http://nginx.org/r/zone).
