Every request to a database at Lyft is proxied by Envoy, providing complete visibility into the L3/L4 aspects of database interactions. This allows engineers to easily visualize changes to a database's load profile and pinpoint the root cause if necessary. Lyft has also open-sourced codecs for MongoDB, DynamoDB, and Redis. Protocol codecs in combination with custom filters yield benefits ranging from operation-level observability to horizontal scalability via sharding. Using Envoy for this purpose means that enhancements are implemented once and usable across a polyglot stack. The talk will demonstrate Envoy's utility beyond traditional RPC service interactions in the network. Topics will include protocol analysis, using a proxy for connection pooling, network-level rate limiting, and partitioning with consistent hashing.
