Re: Slaving from Mirror Mode

I am setting up mirror mode masters both in the same data centre, with
one slave offsite. Should all the slaves slave from both masters, or
should they slave from a load balancer which decides which master is
getting the writes at present?
I'm never sure what you mean when you say the replica's should slave from
both masters. A replica can only take updates from *one* master for a
given tree. Your best option in your case is to set up MMR where only one
master is taking writes (mirror mode), and have the replica use a load
balanced name between the two masters as its "master" for updates. That
should keep data consistent.
