Replicasets

Introduction

Replica sets is the asynchronous master/slave replication added to Mongodb that takes care off all the failover and recovery for the member nodes. According to the mongodb documentation a replicaset is

  • Two or more nodes that are copies of each other
  • Automatic assignment of a primary(master) node if none is available
  • Drivers that automatically detect the new master and send writes to it

More information at Replicasets

Driver usage

To create a new replicaset follow the instructions on the mongodb site to setup the config and the replicaset instances. Then using the driver.

var replSet = new ReplSetServers( [ 
    new Server( 127.0.0.1, 30000, { auto_reconnect: true } ),
    new Server( 127.0.0.1, 30001, { auto_reconnect: true } ),
    new Server( 127.0.0.1, 30002, { auto_reconnect: true } )
  ], 
  {rs_name:RS.name}
);

var db = new Db('integration_test_', replSet);
db.open(function(err, p_db) {
  // Do you app stuff :)
})

The ReplSetSrvers object has the following parameters

var replSet = new ReplSetSrvers(servers, options)

Where

  • servers is an array of Server objects
  • options can contain the following options
    • rs_name is the name of the replicaset you configured when you started the server, you can have multiple replicasets running on your servers.
    • read_secondary set's the driver to read from secondary servers (slaves) instead of only from the primary(master) server.
