Scaling ProxySQL rapidly in Kubernetes

Editor’s Note: Because our bloggers have lots of useful tips, every now and then we update and bring forward a popular post from the past. Today’s post was originally published on November 26, 2019.

It’s not uncommon these days for us to use a high availability stack for MySQL consisting of Orchestrator, Consul and ProxySQL. You can read more details about this stack by reading Matthias Crauwels’ blog post How to Autoscale ProxySQL in the Cloud as well as Ivan Groenwold’s post on MySQL High Availability With ProxySQL, Consul and Orchestrator. The high-level concept is simply that Orchestrator will monitor the state of the MySQL replication topology and report changes to Consul which in turn can update ProxySQL hosts using …

MySQL Self-Join

I’m switching to MySQL and leveraging Alan Beaulieu’s Learning SQL as a supporting reference for my Database Design and Development course. While reviewing Alan’s Chapter 5: Querying Multiple Tables, I found his coverage of using self-joins minimal.

In fact, he adds a prequel_film_id column to the film table in the sakila database and then a single row to demonstrate a minimal self-join query. I wanted to show them how to view a series of rows interconnected by a self-join, like the following:

SELECT   f.title AS film
,        fp.title AS prequel
FROM     film f LEFT JOIN film fp
ON       f.prequel_id = fp.film_id
WHERE    f.series_name = 'Harry Potter'
AND      fp.series_name = 'Harry Potter'
ORDER BY f.series_number;

It returns the following result set:

Ansible Inventory Automation Using Consul and Orchestrator

Here at Pythian we get a lot of exposure to new technologies and implementation strategies via the work we do internally and for our clients. The most noteworthy technology stack that I’ve seen get a lot of traction in the MySQL community recently is the high availability stack including Orchestrator, Consul and ProxySQL. 

I won’t dive too deeply into the details of this implementation as there are several blog posts that our team has submitted on this topic, but the key thing I want you to keep in mind for this particular topic is the usage of Consul as a “source of truth” for the state of your MySQL replication clusters. If Orchestrator or its adjacent scripts are running as expected, Consul should always have the latest information pertaining to the state of your cluster. This is incredibly valuable. In fact, …

Dockerizing MySQL step by step.


As a Database Engineer in Mydbops. We tend to solve multiple complex problems for our esteemed customers. To control the System resources and scale up /down based on needed we are evaluating Dockers and Kubernetes.

Docker is a set of platform as a service products that uses OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called Containers. Containers are isolated from one another and bundle their own software, libraries and configuration files; they can communicate with each other through well-defined channels.It’s more lightweight than standard Containers and boots up in seconds.

Docker also is easy to use when you need a simple, single instance. What is great about Docker though is that it allows configuring multiple versions of MySQL.

Docker Installation:

Docker can be installed with yum repository or apt-get repository based on your linux …

Hiding instances on MySQL InnoDB Cluster/ReplicaSet

MySQL Router is a core component of InnoDB Cluster/ReplicaSet that enables the automatic routing of client traffic to the right instances of your database architecture. Router can automatically adapt to topology changes, however, there are some scenarios on which one would certainly benefit from having the possibility to tag an instance with a certain attribute that indicates a specific behavior change to Router’s default behavior.…
