ProxySQL 2.4.4 and ProxySQL admin tools (2022-10-04)¶
ProxySQL is a high-performance proxy for MySQL and MySQL-compatible database servers such as Percona Server for MySQL and MariaDB. It acts as an intermediary for client requests seeking resources from the database. ProxySQL was created for the database administrator as a solution for complex replication topology issues.
The ProxySQL Admin (proxysql-admin) tool simplifies the configuration of Percona XtraDB Cluster nodes with ProxySQL. ProxySQL Admin 1.x.x requires custom
Bash scripts to track the status of a Percona XtraDB Cluster. ProxySQL Admin 2.x.x supports Percona XtraDB Cluster without custom scripts.
The Percona Scheduler Admin (percona-scheduler-admin) tool can automatically perform a failover due to node failures, service degradation, or maintenance.
Percona Scheduler admin has different features and capabilities than ProxySQL admin. Do not use the options from one tool in the other tool. Mixing the options may cause unintended results.
This release includes all features and bug fixes available in ProxySQL 2.4.4. The improvements and bug fixes introduced by ProxySQL and included in this release are:
- Increased the maximum value for monitor threads
- Added crash signal handler for fatal arithmetic errors
- Fixed crash when failed
connection_resetis tried to be logged
For more information on these items and other improvements and bug fixes, see the ProxySQL 2.4.4 release notes.
ProxySQL Admin and Percona Scheduler admin have not changed since the previous release.
An upgrade from ProxySQL 1.x.x to ProxySQL 2.x.x requires the removal of the ProxySQL 1.x.x packages. You can upgrade to ProxySQL 2.x.x after completing the removal.
