community.proxysql.proxysql_replication_hostgroups – Manages replication hostgroups using the proxysql admin interface

Note

This plugin is part of the community.proxysql collection (version 1.3.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.proxysql.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.proxysql.proxysql_replication_hostgroups.

Synopsis

  • Each row in mysql_replication_hostgroups represent a pair of writer_hostgroup and reader_hostgroup. ProxySQL will monitor the value of read_only for all the servers in specified hostgroups, and based on the value of read_only will assign the server to the writer or reader hostgroups.

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • PyMySQL

Examples

---
# This example adds a replication hostgroup, it saves the mysql server config
# to disk, but avoids loading the mysql server config to runtime (this might be
# because several replication hostgroup are being added and the user wants to
# push the config to runtime in a single batch using the
# community.general.proxysql_manage_config module).  It uses supplied credentials
# to connect to the proxysql admin interface.

- name: Add a replication hostgroup
  community.proxysql.proxysql_replication_hostgroups:
    login_user: 'admin'
    login_password: 'admin'
    writer_hostgroup: 1
    reader_hostgroup: 2
    state: present
    load_to_runtime: False

- name: Change check_type
  community.proxysql.proxysql_replication_hostgroups:
    login_user: 'admin'
    login_password: 'admin'
    writer_hostgroup: 1
    reader_hostgroup: 2
    check_type: innodb_read_only
    state: present
    load_to_runtime: False

# This example removes a replication hostgroup, saves the mysql server config
# to disk, and dynamically loads the mysql server config to runtime.  It uses
# credentials in a supplied config file to connect to the proxysql admin
# interface.

- name: Remove a replication hostgroup
  community.proxysql.proxysql_replication_hostgroups:
    config_file: '~/proxysql.cnf'
    writer_hostgroup: 3
    reader_hostgroup: 4
    state: absent
