How do I route to a different POP?
Anycast and Ultralow are both resolving to POPs in MIA. This is normally fine, except for peak times when I see network latency go into the several hundreds ms.
I've reported this several times to Olivier Poitrey but it has yet to be resolved.
I would like to route to the ATL POPs for both Anycast and Ultralow (I use the NextDNS CLI) where pages load normally when using 184.108.40.206.
I suspect there is a ton of load in MIA (not just for NextDNS, but from my ISP) where it makes everything super slow and streaming buffer - an issue I do not see when I use a different DNS resolver out of FLL or ATL.
I've attempted to add some Rewrites but they don't appear to be working:
Note: I'm just some guy on the Internet, and I am sure this isn't something that is officially supported by NextDNS so if it doesn't work correctly/at-all, you may have to revert the change and wait for a better or official answer. Definitely back up your existing config before you do this.
You could possibly use a global forwarder in the NextDNS CLI configuration file (referenced here), and specify https://vultr-atl-1.edge.nextdns.io/config_number. You may need to put a bootstrap after the URL, as well, so it would be https://vultr-atl-1.edge.nextdns.io/config_number#220.127.116.11. In theory this should work to get the traffic to another host, but important to note that this has some other caveats: the CLI may not be able to recover if your specified server goes offline and I'm guessing you will also lose any client name/info reporting. There may be other issues I am not thinking of and it may not work at all.
