MySQL Proxy

MySQL Proxy is a simple program that sits between your client and MySQL server(s) that can monitor, analyze or transform their communication. Its flexibility allows for unlimited uses; common ones include:

  • load balancing
  • failover
  • query analysis
  • query filtering and modification
  • ... and many more.

For known issues and caveats with the read/write splitting script, please see the overview page.


MySQL Proxy is released under a GPLv2 license.

Other scripts



The proxy's flexibility stems from its scripting support. A growing collection of snippets can be found at the MySQL Forge.

Their description, categorization, and documentation is kept in the Proxy Cookbook
