FWIW I tested this a while ago on some perf tests on nova and cinder that we
run internally and I found pymysql to be slower by about 10%. It appears that
we were cpu bound in python more often than we were blocking talking to the
db. I do recall someone doing a similar test in neutron saw some speedup,
however. On our side we also exposed a few race conditions which made it less
stable. We hit a few hard deadlocks in volume create IIRC.
I don’t think switching is going to give us much benefit right away. We will
need a few optimizations and bugfixes in other areas (particularly in our
sqlalchemy usage) before we will derive any benefit from the switch.
