By Unicorn choking you mean something in your app chokes, right? :)
Is this something adding fail_timeout=0 in nginx can fix/workaround?
Not sure where nginx itself would choke besides uncached disk reads
or somehow writing a lot of logs.
That said I myself haven't gotten a chance to test that setup I proposed
for a while (except the nginx fail_timeout=0 part, I've gotten folks
running with that for ages now).
