SkySQL website
some users have noticed “MariaDB Audit Plugin”. This auditing feature for MySQL has been requested by more and more customers. Legal constraints make it mandatory for more and more companies to keep logging information about database access and activity.

It is very important for the MySQL community to have an open source audit plugin available. MariaDB team has always stick to the principle of keeping MySQL 100% open source and has developed the MariaDB Audit Plugin according to these principles. The MariaDB Audit Plugin has been developed using the standard MySQL Audit Plugin API. Being based on standard API makes it run both with MariaDB and with Oracle MySQL Server. The MariaDB Audit Plugin also has some unique features only available for MariaDB.

To develop this plugin we have sticked to the principle of listening to our big customer to define the specifications. This is the first version and some more improvements will come. We will be pleased to hear your feedbacks. All bug reports and critics are welcomed. The MariaDB Audit Plugin already covers the main requests that have been expressed. But we have more to come and your improvement requests are welcomed.

The purpose of the MariaDB Audit Plugin is to log the server’s activity. Who connected to the server, what queries ran and what tables were touched is stored to a rotating log file. The MariaDB Audit Plugin also supports output to the widely used syslogd system. It offers the option to include/exclude users from auditing.

Oracle has released an audit plugin available through its MySQL Enterprise Server version. This make it mandatory to have an active subscription. The version you run is then a fully closed source server under a commercial license. In that case you cannot rely on third party support like SkySQL or Percona.

The MariaDB Audit Plugin is delivered as a very light shared library that can be very easily downloaded and installed on any MariaDB/MySQL server.
