MariaDB Audit Plugin 1.1.4 Release Notes

Release date: 21 Feb 2014

This is a Stable (GA) release. In general this means that there are no known serious bugs, except for those marked as feature requests, that no bugs were fixed since last release that caused a notable code changes, and that we believe the code is ready for general usage (based on bug inflow).

Important Notices

  • MariaDB will include the Audit Plugin by default from versions 5.5.37 and 10.0.10. At the time of writing these versions haven't yet been released.
  • The MariaDB Audit Plugin works for MariaDB, MySQL and Percona Server.


If you want to download the MariaDB Audit Plugin separately from the MariaDB server, it happens on SkySQL's site.

Main Improvements

  • When a MariaDB Audit Plugin variable (e.g. server_audit_file_path) is changed the last query ("SET ..") will be added to the log before the new settings apply. With this, switching off auditing will also be audited.
  • Warnings about missing table events when query cache is disabled has been added.
  • Handling of server_audit_excl_users and incl_users. Users cannot be added to both lists. If a user is added to a excl list and already is in the incl list, the user is not included to the excl list and an error is given. If a user is added to the incl list, that already is in the excl list, the user is removed from the excl list and added to incl and a warning is given.

Added platform and database server support

  • The Audit Plugin is now supported in MariaDB 10.0 and as said above it will be included by default into MariaDB 10.0, starting from version 10.0.9
  • Previous versions of the Audit Plugin couldn't be used with Percona Server, but now support for that has been added.

MariaDB Audit Plugin 1.1.4 Changelog

The issue number links will take you to the corresponding issue in MariaDB project tracking.

  • Revision 3912, 2014-02-17
    • MDEV-4472 server_audit.opt added. A temporary solution for Threadpool. Currently it doesn't notify plugins properly about thread connects/disconnects.
  • Revision 3911, 2014-02-17
    • MDEV-5693 server_audit.test fails in --ps-protocol mode. Notifying from the mysqld_stmt_prepare/mysqld_stmt_execute has it's specifics. The command in this case is 'Prepare' and 'Execute' (not just 'Query'). When error is notified from the mysqld_stmt_prepare, the query string is empty. Fixed by tacking it all into account.
  • Revision: 3910, 2014-02-14
  • Revision: 3909, 2014-01-30
    • MDEV-4472 Fixes to make the exc-users and incl-users work more smoothly.
  • Revision: 3908, 2013-11-30
    • MDEV-5365 server_audit_excl_users and server_audit_incl_users behave weird when assigned. As these variables used same temporary buffer, the same content was shown to SHOW VARIABLES. Fixed by using separate buffers. Also warning added when the QUERY CACHE is active that TABLE events can be hidden by it.
  • Revision: 3907, 2013-11-15
    • MDEV-4472 Version number set to 1.1.4. Additions 17.
  • Revision: 3906, 2013-11-14
