Nginx Curious why you decided to manually set Nginx worker processes?

    Hey @eva2000 curious why in Nginx conf I see worker processes set manually at 2 rather than set at the 'auto' setting which detects number of cores and runs 1 worker for each core?

    Not criticizing, just trying to learn since I'm sure you put some thought into it.

    I think it is still auto based on your available CPU core.
    I think almost half of it will be use on your config.
    And it is configured during centmin install.
