It detects based on status of requests to upstream servers. If
requests fail - the server is considered down and additional
requests aren't routed to it for some time.

For alive servers - as often as normal requests are routed to the
servers. For servers already considered down - once per
fail_timeout (per worker, see below).

Currently, there is no way. Moreover, each nginx worker process
has it's own idea about status of upstream servers.
