Utilizing ProxySQL for Connection Pooling in PHP

Tuesday 2:20PM-3:10PM

@ Swift Suite 1

MySQL / MariaDBOpen Source Databases

50 minutes conference


Developer, Operations

The presentation will be a real-life study on how we utilize ProxySQL for connection pooling, database failover and load balancing the communication between our (third party) PHP-application and our master-master MySQL-cluster.

Also, we will show monitoring and statistics using Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM).

ProxySQL is a very powerful tool, with extended capabilities, and we want to show that it?s possible to utilize this to gain functionality (seamless database backend switch) and correct problems (applications missing connection pooling).
