I have a node.js server running behind an nginx proxy. node.js is running an HTTP 1.1 (no SSL) server on port 3000. Both are running on the same server.
I recently set up nginx to use HTTP2 with SSL (h2). It seems that HTTP2 is indeed enabled and working.
However, I want to know whether the fact that the proxy connection (nginx <--> node.js) is using HTTP 1.1 affects performance. That is, am I missing the HTTP2 benefits in terms of speed because my internal connection is HTTP 1.1?
