I’m Adam and I’ve been researching load balancing for my undergraduate senior project. I’m particularly interested in the behavior of the “power of two choices” and join-idle-queue algorithms on Nginx.

I’ve found that the `ngx_http_upstream_module` specifies a `least_conn` and `least_time` load balancing method, but otherwise incorporates round-robin.

I was curious if the Nginx community had ever discussed implementing other load balancing methods?
