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?
This is a follow-up blog post that expands on the subject of highly available cluster, discussed in MariaDB MaxScale High Availability: Active-Standby Cluster.
