Subject [jira] Updated: (HIVE-1948) Have audit logging in the Metastore
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 23:16:30 GMT


Devaraj Das updated HIVE-1948:

    Status: Patch Available  (was: Open)

Submitting patch for review. There is one caveat with this patch - it won't log the IP address
of the remote clients when security is enabled in Hive. Making this work means a change in
thrift. I have raised THRIFT-1053 for the same. Once THRIFT-1053 is addressed, I will provide
a fix (in a different jira) to capture the IP address for the secure case too.

> It would be good to have audit logging in the metastore, similar to Hadoop's NameNode
audit logging. This would allow administrators to dig into details about which user performed
metadata operations (like create/drop tables/partitions) and from where (IP address).
