MaxScale for the rest of us - Part 4
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
If you have followed this series of blogs (Introduction in part 1, Setting up the cluster in part 2 and Installing and configuring MaxScale in part 3), you should now have MaxScale up and running on a Cluster using MariaDB Replication. But as I said when I left off in Part 3, there is more to it.

To begin with, let's look at how the replication system works. Let's insert some more data through MaxScale, this should end up with the master and the replication system will handle making this available on the slaves. So on the

MaxScale - We'd Love to Know Your Thoughts

As you've heard, MaxScale was recently released, and we'd love for you to try it out and let us know your thoughts.

Anders Karlsson and Ivan Zoratti have written some excellent posts on downloading and setting it up, so if you're intersted in that, please see their respective posts for quick, detailed instructions.

MaxScale for the rest of us - Part 3
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
This third post in this series of blogs about MaxScale is finally getting where you want to go: Install and configure MaxScale. The first blog in this series was an overview of what MaxScale is and the second about how to set up a Cluster of MariaDB servers, using MariaDB Replication, for MaxScale to access. But now it's time to introduce MaxScale.

If you skipped the second post as you already know how to set up MariaDB with Replication and all that, be remineded that I will use the same Linux server setup as outlined there even for the MaxScale server and for a client to do some testing, and I recommend you stick with that for now (for

MaxScale for the rest of us - Part 2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
The first blogpost in this series did a quick introduction to MaxScale, but now it is time start getting our hands dirty. We will get a more practical view on MaxScale and begin to put it to work. The following is based on a simple Proof of Concept that I did recently. The application is a mid-size web-based online shop where scalability is becoming an issue. They use PHP and with an old and rather inflexible framework, so even though changing how the database is used is possible, it's not easy and having database routing in the application code isn't a very good idea either.

The scalability issues affects reads, but as all traffic is directed to one database server, when this server gets slow, writes, like when entering an order, gets very slow,

As many of you know, both MariaDB Enterprise and MaxScale have been released and are now available for use.

Since they are both so new, I just wanted to let everyone know Ivan Zoratti will conducting a webinar next week discussing both of these technologies.

I’m looking forward to it, and should anyone out there be interested in either MDBE or MaxScale, we hope you’ll attend, and get any questions you might have answered.

MaxScale for the rest of us - Part 1

SkySQL released MaxScale as Open Source on github a few weeks ago. For some instructions on how to install and configure it, Ivan Zoratti has written a blog about that, and Mark Riddoch has written about why we need MaxScale here, but what I will try in a series of blogs is to describe what MaxScale is, in terms of what you can do with it, and to put it into context, so that you have an idea why you would want to install it in the first place. I will also show how to configure and manage MaxScale. This first post is a quick introduction to MaxScale.

So what is

A Close Encounter with MaxScale
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MaxScale is the new proxy server from the SkySQL/MariaDB team. It provides Connection Load Balancing (CLB) and Statement Load Balancing (SLB) out of the box. This post is a [relatively] quick “how to” install, configure and test SLB with the read/write splitting module.

Step 1 - Server preparation

If you do not have many HW resources, you may run everything on a single Linux instance, but the best way to test MaxScale is to use at least 4 servers: one for MaxScale and for the client apps, one as Master and two as slaves - so, 4 in total. In this post I am going a bit further, I will use 5 servers:
Max 0 - For client apps (
Max 1 - The master server (
Max 2 - The first slave (
Max 3 - The second slave (
Max 4 - The third slave (
Max 6 - The MaxScale
