Dear Lazyweb,

I am tracking three four five lots of different proxies for MySQL today:

http://forge.mysql.com/wiki/MySQL_Proxy
http://consoleninja.net/code/dpm/README.html
http://spockproxy.sourceforge.net/
http://sqlrelay.sourceforge.net/
http://myosotis.continuent.org/HomePage
Proximo

Would someone please do a write up on which is best, which is moving forward, and synopsis the differences? I don't expect a front runner just yet, but it would be nice to see a comparison about how their development is going.

Thanks!
-Brian

BTW I am sorry if I missed a proxy, if you have another one email me or leave a comment.
BBTW I don't consider HScale a proxy, but yes it is damn neat.
BBBTW I think the creation of proxies, points to a trend ;)

Have you played with it? It being Perl makes it pretty sexy :)

I don't think anybody has actually played with it besides me, and I wrote it, so I don't think I count. ;-)

It's quite functional and works well for what it does, but it's pure Perl at this point and isn't extremely fast. I think the MySQL Proxy approach of having a C core is a good one, but I ran into the same issues as the above poster - couldn't figure out how to do what I wanted. (Which is mostly documentation and lack of Lua knowledge, I imagine.)

Also, I'm a sucker for Perl. All those years working on Perlbal, the same sort of approach seems like it would work really well for MySQL as well!
