Hi Maxim,

Thanks for responding. I agree with your recommendation. I guess a direct upgrade from 1.12 to 1.16 (free community version) is possible and shouldn't break it.

I'm preferring 1.61 since it's the latest stable version. Beside the upgrade, do you recommend any performance tuning should be done?


FYI - This is the error I see in the "dns.log" occurring frequently.

2020/02/19 16:47:28 [error] 19509#0: *4852298929 no live upstreams while connecting to upstream, udp client: x.x.x.x, server:, upstream: "dns_servers", bytes from/to client:50/0, bytes from/to upstream:0/0

This is the nginx.conf ---
