welche version vom proxy benutzt du?

Von welcher Version des proxy benutzt du das rw-splitting.lua?

Es ist bekannt, dass das rw-splitting.lua nicht wirklich funktioniert.

I must be very clear about it (since this comes up very often):
Personally, I would not advise anyone to use rw-splitting.lua in production.

It is a proof-of-concept and there's implicit and explicit state in the client-server connection that would have to be maintained. This is currently not done and it is hard to do at any rate (at least without help from the client application).
Thus I would not use it for anything else than experimental purposes.

This is not to say that I don't find the idea attractive nor that it is not a good project to work on, but so far no one has solved this problem transparently (at least no one I've heard of).

There's also a relevant bug report about rw-splitting.lua where I also commented along these lines.
I strongly consider to remove it in the future (and least that's my vote) and move it to an experimental branch or something.
