6.5.5.1 Audit Log Components

MySQL Enterprise Audit is based on the audit log plugin and related components:

  • A server-side plugin named audit_log examines auditable events and determines whether to write them to the audit log.

  • User-defined functions enable manipulation of filtering definitions that control logging behavior, the encryption password, and log file reading.

  • Tables in the mysql system database provide persistent storage of filter and user account data.

  • System variables enable audit log configuration and status variables provide runtime operational information.

  • An AUDIT_ADMIN privilege enable users to administer the audit log.
