Subject Re: smart client proxy for cassandra
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 17:29:20 GMT
I've heard of people using HA Proxy with php as a connection pool.

Note that detecting failure in Cassandra can only be done as part of a request. So HA Proxy
cannot understand if a node is actually functional, only that it allows a socket to be opened.

There is some work being done on creating a proxy server with Hector
Not sure on it's progress.
