This advisor enables you to configure event generation for the audit log plugin. This advisor has the following parameters:

  • Events Lost Threshold: generates events for audit events which are lost due to setting the server's audit_log_strategy to PERFORMANCE. Enter a number of lost messages per threshold.

  • Write Wait Percent Thresholds: generates events for the number of audit log write waits. The percentage is calculated as write waits versus writes.

  • Events Filtered Threshold: generates events for the number of audit events which are filtered out by the audit log configuration

  • Detect Filtering Configurations: if set to Yes, generates events for any configuration which filters audit log events. If set to No, such configurations are ignored.

This advisor enables you to configure event generation for the MySQL Enterprise Firewall. This advisor has the following parameters:

  • Access Denied Threshold: generates events for the number of times statements were denied by the firewall. Enter the number of denials in the required thresholds.

  • Access Suspicious Threshold: generates events for the number of times statements were deemed suspicious by the firewall.
