Are the MySQL responses captured by Packetbeat?

(Srpatatas) #1

Hi, I didn't find any mentions on the documentation or forum, is packetbeat able to capture the response values from the mysql queries? For example if I have a "SELECT x from table_y where id='123'" I know packetbeat will parse and save that query, but can it store also the x value (SELECT response)? If not, is this feature planned?

you have to enable send_response: true in mysql protocol section to store query results. Never tried myself, though.

Thank you Steffen! That did the trick! Perhaps it could be added to the packetbeat.yml default configuration (commented out) so that you can know it's possible to add this option. I can see that option is present on the DNS protocol now that you mentioned it.
