AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL allows you to use the SQL audit feature to view SQL details and audit SQL queries on a regular basis. The SQL audit feature does not affect instance performance.

Background information

SQL audit records all DML and DDL operations. The system captures such operations by analyzing data transmitted over network protocols. A few records may be lost when a large number of SQL queries are sent to database instances.


SQL audit logs are retained for 30 days.
