Force reads on Master in Master-Slave configuration

You are viewing an old version of this question. View the current version here.

I want to use MaxScale to scale the reads throughput.

But I also want to only use 2 instances: 1 Master and 1 Slave.

When using the read-write-split router in this configuration, only the slave receives the reads. Is there a way to also allow reads on the master?

I've found in the documentation: "By default, no reads are sent to the master as long as there is a valid slave server available. If no slaves are available, reads are sent to the master regardless of the value of master_accept_reads."

Ok, so "by default" means that there is a way to force reads on the master?

To allow reads on the master, add master_accept_reads=true in the service section.
