We always talk about performance. But as a best practice, we want to "Measure, don't guess!" A lot of performance improvements have been added recently to the MariaDB Java Connector. So, what's the current driver performance level?
The new CDC protocol modules in MaxScale 2.0.0 can be used to convert binlog events into easy to stream data. These streams can be guided to other systems for further processing and in-depth analysis. In this article, we set up a simple Kafka broker on CentOS 7 and publish changes in the database as JSON to it with the help of the new CDC protocol in MaxScale.
MariaDB MaxScale 2.0 can be configured for MariaDB 10 Binlog to AVRO conversion and the converted files can be requested with the new CDC protocol. This post will cover details of how to use the CDC protocol to request streaming data from MariaDB MaxScale.

The last blog post described some basic information about row-level security, but row-level security policies are highly dependent on an application's or organization's security requirements. In this blog post, I'm going to walk through an example row-level security implementation in MariaDB 10.0 in a little more detail.
