Re: slave to master
I quote this from the page:
Load balancing implementation Random picking
When initializing a connection or after a failed connection, the connector
will attempt to connect to a host with a certain role (slave/master). The
connection is selected randomly among the valid hosts. Thereafter, all
statements will run on that database server until the connection will be
closed (or fails).
The load-balancing will includes a pooling mechanism. Example: when
creating a pool of 60 connections, each one will use a random host. With 3
master hosts, the pool will have about 20 connections to each host.
Master/slave distributed load
For a cluster composed of masters and slaves on connection initialization,
there will be 2 underlying connections: one with a master host, another
with a slave host. Only one connection is used at a time.
For a cluster composed of master hosts only, each connection has only one
The load will be distributed due to the random distribution of connections..
Master/slave connection selection It’s the application that has to decide
to use master or slave connection (the master connection is set by default).
Switching the type of connection is done by using JDBC
method. Setting read-only to true will use the slave connection, false, the
So I think it is not implemented yet. as "the application has to decide to
use master or slave connection (the master connection is set by default)."
