Is MySQL HeatWave really faster ?

You may have come across numerous presentations showcasing MySQL HeatWave as a Query Accelerator for MySQL. However, if you have not yet had the opportunity to test it yourself (if you have, you already know the answer), allow us to conduct a test using actual data to determine the potential benefits of utilizing a MySQL HeatWave Cluster.

Data & Queries

The data is simple, some arduinos with a DHT22 sensor sending temperature and humidity.

So first let’s have a look at the amount of collected data:

select format_bytes(sum(data_length)) DATA,
       format_bytes(sum(index_length)) INDEXES,
       format_bytes(sum(data_length + index_length)) 'TOTAL SIZE'
from information_schema.TABLES order by data_length + index_length;

MySQL 8.2 Read/Write Splitting: a what cost ?

We’ve seen in previous articles what Transparent Read/Write Splitting is with MySQL 8.2 and how to use it with MySQL Connector/Python.

I love this new feature, but I was wondering if it was really worth it.

Will the application benefit from offloading reads to another node, and won’t using the MySQL Router and parsing the request slow down connections?

These are the kinds of questions I’d like to cover and answer in this article.

The environment

To perform the test, I use the following environment:

  • Linux Kernel 5.15.0 – aarch64
  • MySQL Community Server 8.2.0
  • MySQL Router 8.2.0
  • sysbench 1.1.0 using LuaJIT 2.1.0-beta3

How to use MySQL 8.2 read/write splitting with Connector/Python

As you know, one of the most eagerly waited features was released with MySQL 8.2: the transparent read/write splitting.

In this post, we’ll look at how to use it with MySQL-Connector/Python.


To play with our Python program, we will use an InnoDB Cluster.

This is an overview of the cluster in MySQL Shell:

JS > cluster.status()
    "clusterName": "fred", 
    "defaultReplicaSet": {
        "name": "default", 
        "primary": "", 
        "ssl": "REQUIRED", 
        "status": "OK", 
        "statusText": "Cluster is ONLINE and can tolerate up to ONE failure.", 
        "topology": {
            "": {
                "address": "", 
                "memberRole": "PRIMARY", …
