Master/Slave database setup with Rails?

I currently setting up a master slave configuration with MySQL where I
will have 1 master for reads/writes and a slave for reads. Just looking
around, I see the Masochism plugin was written for this. Has anyone
used this and does it work well in a production environment with high
traffic? Are there any better solutions? Thanks!

I haven’t used that one, but we used another one
(mysql_replication_adapter I think it was). That one worked well.
Where we used that one I heard they switched over to this one and love
it. The site is huge too so meets your criteria.

I installed masochism and it works very well. The only problem is that
there is a conflict with another plugin -> use_db. Masochism seems to
override the use_db database I set, so its looking for the database from
the master/slave configuration in database.yml. Anybody got a
workaround? I am looking at tweaking the plugin code right now, but if
someone has already done this, let me know. Thanks!

Maurício,

Thanks for creating this plugin… you saved me a ton of time! Its
exactly what I needed. With this I am able to configure master/slave on
any database, but it still allows me not to use it on non-replicated
databases I have set up with use_db.

My woes were a little bit like yours, Masochism broke badly with the
then current rails (2.2) and I had to find a solution. None were
available so I just took the simplest solution (that should have been
the only solution…) that was a “fake” db adapter that handled the
calls to a master/slave connection as needed.

Shout if you have any troubles using it.
