MySQL Proxy: What's Started, What's Done and What's Next?

Moderated by: Mike Frank
Location: Ballroom B Level: Novice

The MySQL Proxy is a lightweight application that sits between your MySQL client and backend databases that allows you to intercept and manipulate their communication stream. Built on a pluggable chassis, the Proxy can be extended, via LUA scripting, to provide advanced load balancing, connection management, SQL capture, data striping/sharding, performance monitoring and other scalability enhancing capabilities not currently built into the MySQL server.

This BoF session brings the MySQL Proxy Community back together with the Enterprise Tools Engineering team to share what we have done, where we are, and where we are headed with the Proxy. It is also a great time to learn about new Proxy extensions and share your feedback on how Proxy can best fit your specific needs.
