The mysqlnd multiplexing plugin (
multiplexes MySQL connections established by all PHP MySQL extensions
that use the MySQL native driver (mysqlnd)
The MySQL native driver for PHP features an internal C API for plugins, such as the connection multiplexing plugin, which can extend the functionality of mysqlnd. See the mysqlnd for additional details about its benefits over the MySQL Client Library libmysqlclient.
Mysqlnd plugins like
mysqlnd_mux operate, for the most part,
transparently from a user perspective. The connection multiplexing
plugin supports all PHP applications, and all MySQL PHP extensions.
It does not change existing APIs. Therefore, it can easily be used with
existing PHP applications.
This is a proof-of-concept. All features are at an early stage. Not all kinds of queries are handled by the plugin yet. Thus, it cannot be used in a drop-in fashion at the moment.
Please, do not use this version in production environments.
