Cloud Firewall too slow

DigitalOcean Cloud Firewalls MySQL

Anyone else experiencing slowness when enabling cloud firewall even when using private network? I spawned up a MySQL instance droplet with another droplet running as a client. I added a tag to the DB and enabled the Cloud Firewall to that DB tag, client connections starts to intermittently timeout. I know the configuration is correct because after several retries it can pass through. Disabling the firewall (read: removing the tag) solves the lag.

Anyone experienced this? Anything that I might be missing? As a workaround, I used internal firewall UFW.

  • This would be disconcerting. Is there a team testing this over at DO, I would imagine so, if not there should be.
