What kind of parameters can be used to estimate how much memory and the number of CPU cores are required for a load balancer?
I have a requirement to setup LB based on Nginx to route the traffic to other nodes via TCP/IP as on other nodes that have PHP-FPM installed. SSL will terminate at Nginx and traffic to nodes is to be based on just HTTP. Max timeout to be five minutes.
I am unable to understand how many requests this Nginx LB can swiftly serve while running on a c6gn.medium (1vCPU,2GB Memory, network bandwidth up to 25GBPS) which is CPU optimized and a t4g.medium which is a burstable instance having 2 vCPU and 4GB memory. Cheers!
