ProxySQL Query Rules: Notes From Production

After spending four years working with ProxySQL in production, I’ve learned a few interesting lessons about interpreting and processing query rules. I hope to save you some time (and avoid wrong turns) with this summary of ProxySQL query rules.

ProxySQL query engine is very powerful and supports the building of complex rule sets. These can be used to route traffic to backend MySQL instances, rewrite queries, and for traffic mirroring, among other use cases.

When the rule set is short and simple, you can easily understand what the outcome for a certain query would be. However, for complex sets or combined scenarios, you need a deeper understanding of the engine logic.

Note 1: Rules are processed in rule_id order

It might seem like a trivial start, but during testing or implementation, …

ProxySQL Binary Search Solution for Rules

We sometimes receive challenging requests… this is a story about one of those times.

The customer has implemented a sharding solution and would like us to review alternatives or improvements. We analyzed the possibility of using ProxySQL as it looked to be a simple implementation. However, as we had 200 shards we had to implement 200 rules — the first shard didn’t have much overload, but the latest one had to go through 200 rules and took longer.

My first idea was to use FLAGIN and FLAGOUT creating a B-Tree, but the performance was the same. Reviewing the code, I realized that the rules were implemented as a list, which means that, in the end, all the rules were going to be processed until hit with the right one and FLAGIN is used just to filter out.

At that point, I asked, what could I do? Is it possible to implement it differently? What is the performance impact?

One Problem, Two Solutions

I …

ProxySQL Overhead — Explained and Measured

ProxySQL brings a lot of value to your MySQL infrastructures such as Caching or Connection Multiplexing but it does not come free — your database needs to go through additional processing traffic which adds some overhead. In this blog post, we’re going to discuss where this overhead comes from and measure such overhead. 

Types of Overhead and Where it Comes From 

There are two main types of overhead to consider when it comes to ProxySQL — Network Overhead and Processing Overhead. 

Network Overhead largely depends on where you locate ProxySQL. For example, in case you deploy ProxySQL on the separate host (or hosts) as in this diagram: 

The application will have added network latency for all requests, compared to …

Protect your data using ProxySQL Firewall

ProxySQL Firewall Overview

ProxySQL’s flexible query rules engine has many uses, from Read/Write splitting, sharding and even creating firewall blacklist. This allows ProxySQL to be loved by both Performance and Security-minded engineers.

Starting in ProxySQL 2.0.9, ProxySQL has another Security feature: the Firewall Whitelist.

Modeled on MySQL Enterprise Firewall, this allows a security-conscious administrator to tune access to only allow certain queries.

Imagine a situation where your webapp gets hacked, which exposes your user’s database credentials.

If your webapp connects directly to the database, the malicious user can do what they want to your data with the same permissions your webapp has.

So perhaps they can’t just DROP TABLE because you’ve smartly removed DDL permissions …
