If you don't lower MSL, too many sockets will sit in TIMED_WAIT state
on the testing client, which consumes local port space.  Local port
space depletion == wrk can do more requests.

15K concurrent connection on each client box is a heuristic to make
sure local ports can be recycled timely.  You need to figure out your
value on the testing box.  But, normally, 15K ~ 10K is doable on each
client machine for a given server.

Well, nginx's default setting is 100 requests/connection :).  I use
--connreqs 1 to generate "short-lived" connection bomb.
