Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is chproxy production ready?

    Yes, we successfully use it in production for SELECT requests. Others found it handy for INSERT as well. However, our benchmarks proved that it’s better to insert data without proxy with NATIVE ClickHouse protocol. requests.

  • What about chproxy performance?

    A single chproxy instance easily proxies 1Gbps of compressed INSERT data while using less than 20% of a single CPU core in our production setup.

  • Does chproxy support native interface for ClickHouse?

    No. Because currently all our services work with ClickHouse only via HTTP. Support for native interface may be added in the future.
