I have set up a basic failover process within Amazon Route53 where they conduct a health check and if they're unhappy with the results, they reroute requests to a secondary server. According to my access logs, it appears that this check occurs roughly once a second.
It looks like each datacenter and DNS server does a check every 30 seconds. I'm assuming these checks are staggered, round-robin fashion, hence the illusion of a check every second.
Is there a way to adjust this so that we only get one "ping" say every 15 or 30 seconds?
