I have this project that has a great hit on read queries so I was wondering if I can use Managed DB to have a main node and many R/O nodes, but the question is how to do the load balancing in this case?

    This is not what I’m asking… and even so this is provided on the go when you launch Managed DB… It already provides automatic failover when you create a stand-by node, check the documentation
