Hello MySQL developers.
We are looking into redirecting updates, inserts etc. directly on
slave servers in a replicated set-up. Instead of having the clients
figure out where to send updates, the slave will itself forward data
manipulation queries to the master, wait for the same query from the
master to arrive and complete, then return the result. The client will

What is the best place to start? We don't want to have a seperate
proxy process doing the filtering, since authentication by ip address
will then be impossible from the end-point's view (and to avoid the
Can you point to some sections in the code that would be useful to
look at? At which point in the code can we look at a query and
determine whether it should be sent to the master? How are queries
