MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Audit Log Plugin Restrictions

7.4.4.8 Audit Log Plugin Restrictions

The audit log plugin is subject to these general restrictions:

  • Only SQL statements are logged. Changes made by no-SQL APIs, such as memcached, Node.JS, and the NDB API, are not logged.

  • Only top-level statements are logged, not statements within stored programs such as triggers or stored procedures.

  • Contents of files referenced by statements such as LOAD DATA INFILE are not logged.

MySQL Cluster.  It is possible to use the audit log plugin with MySQL Cluster, subject to the following conditions:

  • All changes to be logged must be done using the SQL interface. Changes using no-SQL interfaces, such as those provided by the NDB API, memcached, or ClusterJ, are not logged.

  • The plugin must be installed on each MySQL server that is used to execute SQL on the cluster.

  • Audit plugin data must be aggregated amongst all MySQL servers used with the cluster. This aggregation is the responsibility of the application or user.
