WL#3091: Log tables features
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
This worklog lists several points missing in the current log tables implementation, which were present in the WL #1019 "SELECT FROM slow_query logs" spec. Namely: -- The information shown in the SLOW_LOG and GENERAL_LOG tables will be specific to the CURRENT_USER only; that is, a user can see only his own entries unless he has SELECT privilege on the log table. In the latter case he can see all the entries. -- The old --log options should control location of the old-fashioned log files, while CSV tables placement should be changed with ALTER TABLE's DATA DIRECTORY option. However, DATA DIRECTORY option is currenly ignored by ALTER TABLE and ha_tina does not support it yet (DATA DIRECTORY works only with CREATE TABLE for MyISAM tables at the moment). So, this should be fixed. Another useful extension to the current log tables implementation is to extend myISAM to be able to store logs. This is being discussed with brian at the moment. We should also make a decision on the compilation dependencies. That is, what should be compiled out and when. Shell we add Configure switch for log tables? Use a hard depency on CSV? This should be decided and implemented.
