ActiveRecord model with multiple table?

Hello. I have large database of old web application (written in php).
Want to rewrite in Rails.

But here is a problem.

My User data is split to 10 Table. named user_0, user_1,user_2
if user.id % 10 = 1 will store to user_1 for (database scable reason)

But most people use rails is using 1 model => 1 table.

Is anyone here know about how to implement or any plugin to do 1 model
=> multiple table or have similar experience ?

What scaling issue is addressed by this remarkable approach?

That certainly is unusual. If you don’t want to (or cannot) convert
the ten user tables into a single users table, I would consider
creating a pure ruby class that was composed with a user model. The
pure ruby class would be a proxy and you’d delegate most of the method
calls to the instance that you find by querying the ten ‘sub-user’
tables.

It’s possible that you could use this as a plan for migrating the data
into one table, too. You could query from any table, but always save
the data back to one. Eventually you’ll get all the active users over
to one table. That’s probably more work than it’s worth but it’s an
option.

Allowing the database to ignore its own built-in block paging
algorithms?

I suspect the original coder invented that beauty. In PhP, natch…

xxdd should read the /Rails Recipes/ chapter on legacy databases, then
connect directly to that database. And she or he should then write and
deploy new features in Rails while leaving the old system online. Don’t
write Rails (or any app) for a long time without delivering anything.
The
best way to get your foot in the door is add one new feature with Rails,
then give it to customers who can leave the old system online with the
new
one.
