Mysql data no longer getting into ES


(Guillaume Vachon) #1

Hi all,

I have been running packetbeat to collect mysql data since the early beta and it always worked perfectly. I upgraded through every release and now im running 1.0.1.

Sending the mysql data stopped working a week ago and it seems to be around the time we switched from mysqli to pdo. Could there be a link between the 2?

I used to gather in ES about 5000 entry per 10 seconds and now I get about 15 entry per 30 minutes.

Using packetbeat -e -c /etc/packetbeat/packetbeat.yml -d "publish,mysql,mysqldetailed"
I get the following:

in comparison to mysqli, pdo seems to use prepared statements (or your implementation changed?), which is currently not supported by mysql.

The Request Type=23 is the execute statement request, which is currently ignored by packetbeat.

Alright at least there is an explanation and it make sense!

Do you know if there are any plan to support type 23?

Many thanks for your time.

It's about supporting prepared statements in mysql analyzer in general. I'm not aware of any plans, but feel free to add a feature request. We're always happy about community contributions :wink:
