    Multicast

    552848
      Has anyone experimented with multicast and Berkeley DB replication ?

      It seems to me that multicast could be used to significantly speed up replication in environments that contain a large number of slaves (or environments that need to cold start a moderate number of replication clients with large database)

      Also has there been any thought into adding multicast support to the replication manager API? After a brief peek at the code I did not see any major problems preventing the addition of this feature that would require any real rewriting.
