High Performance Advanced Proxy for MySQL

Synopsis

proxysql [Options]

Description

proxysql is a high performance, high availability, protocol aware proxy for MySQL and forks (like Percona Server and MariaDB).

Options

-c,  --config ARG

Configuration file. By default, the proxy looks for the config file in the following locations (in this exact order):

  • `proxysql.cnf`, in the directory of the proxysql binary
  • `proxysql.cfg`, in the directory of the proxysql binary
  • `/etc/proxysql.cnf`
  • `/etc/proxysql.cfg`

This setting allows you to override the configuration file, and specify a custom location.

-D,  --datadir ARG

The data directory is where the proxy keeps its running files:

  • the SQLite database which stores the runtime configuration for the proxy
  • the pidfile
  • the log files
-e,  --exit-on-error

Do not restart ProxySQL if crashes.

-f,  --foreground

Run the daemon process in the foreground.

-h,  -help,  --help,  --usage

Display usage instructions.

-M,  --no-monitor

Do not start Monitor Module.

-n,  --no-start

Starts only the admin service, which helps to configure the daemon. This will not accept any traffic until the daemon is started from the admin interface.

-r,  --reuseport

Use SO_REUSEPORT.

-S,  --admin-socket ARG

Administration Unix Socket.

-V,  --version

Print the current version of ProxySQL.

--initial

Reset the admin database with the content from the configuration file.

--reload

Merge the configuration from the config file with the current runtime database.
