1 Master, N Slaves

Hello all,

Reading the site you can note that "1 Master for writes, N Slaves for reads" scheme is used offen.

How is this implemented? Who decides where writes and reads go? Something in application level or specific database proxies, like Slony-I?

Usually it's in the application because it knows the configuration. There's also MySQL Proxy ( that will route reads and writes in some future release. I was sure someone already made it do this, but I can't find the reference.
