Better response time for clients can be achieved by splitting the load
for processing client queries between the master and slave servers.
SELECT queries may be sent to the slave to reduce the query processing
load of the master. Statements that modify data should still be sent to
the master so that the master and slave do not get out of synchrony.
This load-balancing strategy is effective if non-updating queries
dominate, but that is the normal case.
