Changed Features


The systemd watchdog is now safe to use in all circumstances.

By default it is enabled with a timeout of 60 seconds.



The default value of connection_keepalive is now 300 seconds. This prevents the connections from dying due to wait_timeout with longer sessions. This is especially helpful with pooled connections that stay alive for a very long time.


The monitor by default assumes that hostnames used by MaxScale to connect to the backends are equal to the ones backends use to connect to each other. Specifically, for the slave connections to be properly detected the Master_Host and Master_Port fields of the output to "SHOW ALL SLAVES STATUS"-query must match server entries in the MaxScale configuration file. If the network configuration is such that this is not the case, the setting assume_unique_hostnames should be disabled.
