= Ec2Mysql

== DESCRIPTION:

Simplifies setting up new MySQL slaves using EC2 with Elastic Block Devices

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Snapshot a master with slave creation information saved as JSON
  * Keep N backups
* Create a slave from a given snapshot (or the latest, given a Volume ID)
  * Deal with both regular and LVM block devices
  
== SYNOPSIS:

It's a two step process.  Run the backup on the Master, then run the build on your Slave.

=== Master Backup:

On your master EC2 Node:

	$ sudo ./ec2_mysql -a 'AWS_ID' -s 'AWS_SECRET_KEY' -p 'MYSQL_ROOT' master

=== Slave Creation:

On your slave EC2 Node:

  $ sudo ./ec2_mysql -a 'AWS_ID' -s 'AWS_SECRET_KEY' -U 'MYSQL_REPL_USER' -P 'MYSQL_REPL_PASS' -p 'MYSQL_ROOT' -h 'MYSQL_MASTER_IP_ADDRESS' -v 'MYSQL_MASTER_EBS_VOLUME_ID' slave

== REQUIREMENTS:

* DBI
* DBD::Mysql
* Right AWS
* JSON

== INSTALL:

Haven't made a gem yet or any packages. :)

== BONUS POINTS:

Use Capistrano to dynamically build 100 slaves at the same time.  Watch magic scaling.  Celebrate.
