Class::DBI::Replication - Class::DBI for replicated database
package Film; use base qw(Class::DBI::Replication); Film->set_master('dbi:mysql:host=master', $user, $pw); Film->set_slaves( [ 'dbi:mysql:host=slave1', $user, $pw ], [ 'dbi:mysql:host=slave2', $user, $pw ], );
Classs::DBI::Replication extends Class::DBI's persistence for replicated databases.
The idea is very simple. SELECT from slaves, INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE to master.
Q: What should I do to prepare my client code to use performance-enhancing replication? A: If the part of your code that is responsible for database access has been properly abstracted/modularized, converting it to run with the replicated setup should be very smooth and easy - just change the implementation of your database access to read from some slave or the master, and to always write to the master.
With Class::DBI::Replication, it can be done easily!
Film->set_master($datasource, $user, $password, \%attr);
This spcifies your master database. INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE are done only to this database. Some SELECT queries also done to master for concurrency problem.
If you don't want master to be distinct from slaves in SELECT queries, put master in slaves, too.
Film->set_slaves( [ 'dbi:mysql:host=slave1', $user, $password, \%attr ], [ 'dbi:mysql:host=slave2', $user, $password, \%attr ], );
This specifies your slave databases. SELECT are done to these databases randomly. If you don't specify slaves, all queries are gone to master, as always.
