Hi all,
  I want to implement the following feature:
 1. client HEAD request arrive , my module send it to an upstream.
 2. the upstream return response.
 3. my module check the response, if it is not the data I want, send the
origin request to another upstream

 I know the block mode will work. I want to know if there is
mode which will fit into nginx better?

I think you can write an upstream module to resolve it.

use the HEAD you get, to make a request, send the new request to the
upstream you want to sent, get the response, check it,

and then you can use ngx_http_internal_redirect£¨£© function to redirect
the origin request to another upstream you defined.

just do it, good luck!
