Q : Nginx with libevent

  I am trying to use nginx load balancing with an http server running on top of libevent.  Because nginx makes connection requests  in round robin fashion I am seeing a strange behavior when one of the http server is running a long query against backend database. What I am seeing is nginx picks this particular server and the request from client blocks on the call until the server comes back and entertains the request. Is there a way I can tell nginx to not use a connection when there's already a pending request ? I guess BIG IP does something similar where you can pick LRU algorithm and it will skip over active connections until we exhaust every server in the pool.
