I was recently talking on the #mariadb channel on FreeNode and I got a question about the often overlooked PDF documentation generation. In this blog I will show how to create a set of PDF files of the MariaDB MaxScale's documentation - a good way to keep the documentation handy. I did this on Ubuntu 14.04, but it should also work on other platforms.
The MaxScale persistent connection feature has been available since version 1.3.0. It aims to reduce the load on the database servers in specific scenarios. Testing indicates benefits and feedback from live use has been positive.
MariaDB MaxScale, the dynamic routing platform for MariaDB Server (and MySQL Server) had its first stable 1.0 GA release 15 months ago. Since then, the popularity of MariaDB MaxScale has grown exponentially. It has in many cases become a default piece of the architecture in clustered setups of MariaDB Server, in master-slave replication setups and in very large replication topologies making use of MariaDB MaxScale’s Binlog Server functionality.
New and Improved Functionality
The recently released 1.4.1 version of MariaDB MaxScale contains a bundle of great improvements to the Database Firewall Filter, dbfwfilter. This article starts by describing the dbfwfilter module and how it is used. Next we’ll find out what kinds of improvements were made to the filter in MaxScale 1.4.1 and we’ll finish by looking at a few use cases for it.
Here are the highlights of the new dbfwfilter functionality in the 1.4.1 release of MaxScale.

In database setups with a large number of users reading data, the Binlog Server can be used to offload traffic to the Master, make Master failover easier to handle and in general simplify replication. In this blog I will describe the benefits of Binlog Server and how to set up MaxScale as a Binlog Server.
