I have used tidb-loadbalance in POC, and also used haproxy a lot. There is not much difference under stress testing, you can actually test it out.

No, because it doesn’t support .NET :joy:

The performance requirements for the database proxy are not high.

KP F5 have both been used. If the traffic is large, hardware load balancing is better.

haproxy + keepalived

You can try it, but it mainly depends on the traffic.

If you are using a cloud server, it is better to use their load balancer.

We use HAProxy + Keepalived.

If money is not an issue, go for F5.

I haven’t used it, will the performance be better than others?

This is used less frequently; it’s better to use something more mature.
