MySQL Router 8.0

Chapter 3 Deploying MySQL Router

Performance Recommendations

For best performance, MySQL Router is typically installed on the same host as the application that uses it. Possible reasons include:

You can run multiple MySQL Router instances on your network, and you do not need to isolate MySQL Router to a single machine. This is because MySQL Router has no affinity for any particular server or host.

Figure 3.1 Example MySQL Router Deployment

Example deployment shows a central Group Replication and Highly Available setup with three entities pointing towards or connected to it: MySQL Shell, and two stacks that each include MySQL Router, MySQL Connector, and the Application.
