the doc says ip_hash can't be combined with weight

It is not possible to combine ip_hash and weight methods for connection distribution. If one of the servers must be removed for some time, you must mark that server as *down*.

I believe it can be implemented like this (given that an ip is 32bit integer):

int upstreams_c=4;
int *weights={2,3,1,1};
int weights_sum=7;
int *upstreams={0,0, 1,1,1, 2, 3}; // constructed from weights
int get_upstream(int client_ip) {
// return 0 for first upstream, 1 for second upstream ...etc.
return upstreams[client_ip % weights_sum];

Weight support added to ip_hash in 1.3.1.
