The performance of TLS with MySQL Connector/Python

I've ran a simple test to see the performance impact of TLS on MySQL connections with MySQL Connector/Python

The test results are in this Jupyter notebook.


  • Try to reuse connections if you use TLS
  • Establishing TLS connections is expensive (server & client)
  • Improved performance might be possible in the future by using TLS Tickets

Not tested:

  • Difference between YaSSL and OpenSSL
  • Difference between Ciphersuites
  • Performance of larger resultsets and queries
The performance of MySQL Connector/Python with C Extension

The source of this post is in this gist on nbviewer.

After reading about the difference between MySQL Connector/Python and MySQLdb on this blog post I wondered how the C Extension option in Connector/Python would perform.

If you want to run the code yourself you'll need: Jupyter/IPython, Python 3, Requests, MySQLdb, Connector/Python, Matplotlib, Pandas and MySQL.

%matplotlib notebook
