Work-in-progress section to highlight advanced features you may want to use

Pages in this section


The pages in this Advanced Features section can be understood as a complement to the User Guides section of the docs. Here, we describe advanced Vitess features that you may want to enable or tune in a production setup.

As of December 2018 , some of these features are not yet documented. We plan to add documentation for them later.

Examples for undocumented features:

  • Hot row protection in vttablet
  • vtgate buffer for lossless failovers
  • vttablet consolidator (avoids duplicated read queries to MySQL, turned on by default)
  • vtexplain
