ProxySQL 1.4.8 and proxysql-admin (2018-05-22)

ProxySQL release, released by ProxySQL, is now available for download in the Percona repository along with an updated version of Percona’s proxysql-admin tool.

ProxySQL is a high-performance proxy, currently for MySQL, and database servers in the MySQL ecosystem (like Percona Server for MySQL and MariaDB). It acts as an intermediary for client requests seeking resources from the database. René Cannaò created ProxySQL for DBAs as a means of solving complex replication topology issues.

The ProxySQL 1.4.8 source and binary packages are available from the Percona download page for ProxySQL include ProxySQL Admin – a tool developed by Percona to configure Percona XtraDB Cluster nodes into ProxySQL. Docker images are available as well. You can download the original ProxySQL from GitHub. ProxySQL offers the ProxySQL documentation.

Usability improvement

  • PSQLADM-84: Now proxysql_status tool dumps host_priority and /etc/proxysql-admin.cnf. Also output format was changed.

Other improvements and bug fixes

  • PSQLADM-66: The –syncusers option now makes ProxySQL Admin to update the user’s password in ProxySQL database if there is any password difference between ProxySQL user and MySQL user.

  • PSQLADM-45: it was unclear from the help screen, that –config-file option requires an argument.

  • PSQLADM-48: ${PROXYSQL_DATADIR}/${CLUSTER_NAME}_mode file was not created at ProxySQL Admin upgrade (1.4.5 or before to 1.4.6 onwards).

  • PSQLADM-52: The proxysql_galera_checker script was not checking empty query rules.

  • PSQLADM-54: proxysql_node_monitor did not change OFFLINE_HARD status properly for the coming back online nodes.

ProxySQL is available under Open Source license GPLv3.
