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.
This release includes ProxySQL 2.0.6 which introduces many new features and enhancements and also fixes a number of bugs. The
proxysql-admin tool has not changed since the previous release.
The ProxySQL 2.0.6 source and binary packages 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 for release 2.0.6 are available as well. You can download the original ProxySQL from GitHub. GitHub hosts the documentation in the wiki format.
