      Comments about oreilly NGINX High Performance:

      I run a good amount of NGINX servers, and I have read "Mastering NGINX" to assist me in managing my servers. This book rounds off the edges so that you can take your NGINX proficiency and performance to a new level.

      This book can be used as a comprehensive reference for every aspect of NGINX, and the bits of Linux involved, that you might need to tune to achieve maximum performance. It also finishes off with a good guide to extending NGINX with Lua, just in case benchmarking and tuning with the tools available is not specific enough to your commercial needs.
