MariaDB MaxScale is an open-source, database-centric proxy that works with MariaDB Enterprise, MariaDB 5.5, MariaDB 10 and Oracle MySQL®. It has a pluggable architecture designed to increase flexibility and aid customization as well as a lightweight, high-speed networking core designed to facilitate throughput.

Module Description

This module will install MaxScale. More might be implemented later, but for now setting up apt repositories and installing the package on Debian/Ubuntu are the only supported features.



What maxscale affects

  • On Debian based systems this module will add a new apt key and sources list using the puppetlabs-apt module. In case you are using a different way to manage apt please ensure that your module won't conflict with puppetlabs-apt.

Setup Requirements

For $::osfamily == 'Debian' the puppetlabs-apt module is required.






So far this module only works on Debian based systems.
