Article Summary

This article contains detailed information about the function and purpose of using a Database Proxy at senhasegura platform.

Proxy Database connection

A database proxy is a type of custom database reverse proxy. It takes requests from clients such as web applications and forwards them to a database server using database-specific settings.


The Database Proxy is limited to 2.000 simultaneous connections. This limit can be changed, but this means a significant increase in memory provisioning, considering each slot uses 64kb of memory. To change this limit, reach out to the senhasegura support team.

Allowing the use of an SQL client to execute sessions with the following functions:

  • Query filters
  • Notifications
  • Audit
