HiveServer2 audit logs

Explorer

Hi, 

 

Is it possible to activate audit logging for all queries executed by users in HiveServer2?

 

I know that Cloudera Navigator can do this but I need it in a small cloudera express cluster.

Is the hive feature used by navigator a closed source extension or can be enabled on a standard installation to log all queries to a file?

 

For now I've only discovered some audits in the metastore log but, with sentry enabled, only the system user hive connects to the metastore.

 

Thanks,

p

HiveServer2 uses a navigator plugin to print audit logs when navigator is enabled. You need purchase navigator to print the audit logs.
