Java & MySQL 8.0.19

It’s the in-between term time and we’re all stuck at home. I decided to update the image for my Fedora 30 virtual machine. I had a work around to the update issue that I had encountered last October in Bug #96969 but it was not required with the current version. However, after updating from MySQL 8.0.17 to MySQL 8.0.19, I found that my Java connection example failed.

The $CLASSPATH value was correct:

/usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java.jar:.

The first error that I got was the my reference to MySQL JDBC driver was incorrect. The error message is quite clear:

Loading class `com.mysql.jdbc.Driver'. This is deprecated. The new driver class is `com.mysql.cj.jdbc.Driver'. The driver is automatically registered via the SPI and manual loading of the driver class is generally unnecessary.
Cannot connect to database server:
The server time zone …

A First Look at Amazon RDS Proxy

At re:Invent in Las Vegas in December 2019, AWS announced the public preview of RDS Proxy, a fully managed database proxy that sits between your application and RDS. The new service offers to “share established database connections, improving database efficiency and application scalability”.

But one of the benefits that caught my eye is the ability to reduce the downtime in case of an instance failure and a failover. As for the announcement:

In case of a failure, RDS Proxy automatically connects to a standby database instance while preserving connections from your application and reduces failover times for RDS and Aurora multi-AZ databases by up to 66%”

You can read more about the announcement and the new service on the AWS …

Scaling ProxySQL rapidly in Kubernetes

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. But 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 a tool called consul-template.

Until now we’ve typically implemented the ProxySQL portion of this stack using an autoscaling group of sorts due to the high levels of CPU usage that can be associated with …
