Effortlessly Scaling out Galera Cluster with ProxySQL

A blog series about ProxySQL and Galera…

This post is the first of a series of blogposts on how to easily use ProxySQL to scale-out your application’s database workload on a Galera cluster. This series will explore the main concepts in configuring ProxySQL for Galera across three articles as follows:

– A first introductory post describing the minimal configuration needed for ProxySQL to monitor and manage a Galera Cluster.
– A second post describing how to setup a read/write split configuration for our Galera Cluster, using ProxySQL query rules.
– A third and final post with examples on specific cluster configuration options and more detailed explanations on why and how ProxySQL changes the nodes states based on configuration changes and monitored variables. Requirements

To illustrate how to configure ProxySQL for a Galera Cluster we will use a sample Galera Cluster

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.

Native Galera Support In ProxySQL

The latest enhancement in ProxySQL v2.0.0 is the native support of Galera Cluster. No more need to use an external script within the scheduler like explained also in this post of ours.

This document will cover how to take an advantage of the new feature and integrate ProxySQL with Percona XtraDB Cluster to monitor galera node status and read-write split performed by ProxySQL. To illustrate we will use a cluster of 3 nodes, below are the details:
