Limit the number of retries after a 503 on PlugIn

Plugin re-tries on 503 error code is equal to the number of jvms in a cluster. We have huge cluster with more than 50 jvms. We want to limit the number of re-tries which plugin attempts on 503. Need a setting to define the limit on the number of retries on 503.
