Can Tyk do liveness check on an API and blacklist an URL which is not working?


I am using Tyk round-robin for an API to load balance between some backend URL endpoints.

I have a question here.

When a request is being sent to this round-robin API, in case one of the backend URL is not working, can Tyk blacklist the URL which is not working for a certain amount of time (hopefully that URL will be working after some times), and send the rest of request to the backend URLs which are working?

Can Tyk do this kind of liveness check on the backend URL which is not working, and blacklist it for certain amount of time?
