# frozen_string_literal: true
# By default, ActiveRecord will issue a PING command to the database to check
# if it is active at various points. This overhead is unnecessary; we instead
# attempt to issue queries without checking the connection, then if the query
# returns an error and the connection was closed, try to reconnect.
# This also allows for reconnection during a single UoW, improving resiliency
# under transient connection failure (e.g. ProxySQL restarts).
# To avoid amplifying load when a database is intermittently down, the attempt

The tricky thing here is that even when you disable the port redirect, traffic can still flow through the redirected port for already established socket sessions, but new connections can't be established.
