upstream: grant recovery time to backend server

October 16, 2012 06:21AM

i have a load balancing setup running with nginx in front and 2 tomcats as backend:

upstream backend {

Runs fine so far, but from time to time one of the tomcats crashes and needs to be restarted. As soon as nginx notices that the tomcat is coming up, nginx starts to forward requests to the starting-up tomcat. But it would be better that the tomcat starts up completly before nginx starts sending requests to it.

Is there any possibility to grant a recovery time to a backend server before the backend receives requests? I.e. something like "nginx: hey, i noticed that the formerly crashed backend server is coming up, but i'll wait 300s before sending requests to it"?

thx in advance
