Suggestions on Using Database Proxy

rdsProxy is an internal database proxy account for RDS. To ensure the proper running of read/write splitting, you are advised not to create an account with the same name as rdsProxy.

Function Constraints

  • After read/write splitting is enabled, if you delete a primary RDS for MySQL instance, the read replicas are also deleted and the read/write splitting function is disabled.
  • Read/write splitting does not support the caching_sha2_password identity authentication plugin for RDS for MySQL 8.0.
  • After read/write splitting is enabled, the database ports, security groups, and floating IP addresses of both the primary instance and read replicas cannot be changed.
  • Read/write splitting does not support SSL.
  • Read/write splitting does not support compression protocols.
  • Read/write splitting does not support the isolation level READ UNCOMMITTED.
  • If multi-statements are executed, all subsequent requests will be routed to the primary instance. To restore the read/write splitting, disconnect the connection between your application and the read/write splitting address and establish a connection again.
  • When the read/write splitting address is used, all transaction requests are routed to the primary instance (you can use the transaction splitting feature to route read requests prior to write operations in a transaction to read replicas). The non-transaction read consistency is not ensured. To ensure read consistency, encapsulate the read requests into a transaction.
  • When the read/write splitting address is used, the LAST_INSERT_ID() function can be used only in transactions.

Syntax Constraints

Read/write splitting routes frontend requests to backend instance nodes by the configured weights.

Therefore, some SQL statements may have different results when being executed multiple times.

  • When the read/write splitting address is used, the execution results of the show processlist command are inconsistent.
  • When the read/write splitting address is used, the kill query operation is not supported.
  • When the read/write splitting address is used, the show errors and show warnings commands are not supported.
  • When the read/write splitting address is used, user-defined variables, such as the SET @variable statements, are not supported.
  • When the read/write splitting address is used, if stored procedures and functions depend on user variables (@variable), the execution result may be incorrect.
