Instead of dest_domain, use dest_ip in your example.  dest_domain would match on the remapped
fqdn or you could use a wild card of dot, '.'.

Since you did not specify a round_robin type, it defaults to 'false' which means the first
parent is always chosen until it fails and is marked down.
If the content isn't on the first parent, it will retry using the second parent becuase you
have enabled simple_retry.  The maximum number of retries for simple_retry defaults to 1 so,
it will not try the third parent unless you set max_simple_retries to 2, ie in the parent.config
line, add 'max_simple_retries=2'

Try changing max_simple_retries.  If you still have trouble, turn on debugging using 'parent_select',
then we can look at the  logs.

Hi ,

We have have a scenario, where we have to point three origin server in parent config, when
client requested to play a video any one of the origin server which having video need to complete
the request.
Please any one suggest me .

Parent config with two origin server

dest_domain= port=80  parent="<>;<>"
parent_is_proxy=false parent_retry=simple_retry

parent config with three origin server:

dest_domain= port=80  parent="<>;<>;<>" parent_is_proxy=false parent_retry=simple_retry

works fine with two origins ,but it  did not work with three origins .
