Ensuring tasks are performed correctly is critical. With CrateDB, auditing becomes a seamless process due to its comprehensive features.

  • Logging queries: CrateDB logs queries performed on its internal tables. This records each action directly within the database, providing a level of transparency that aids in maintaining system integrity.
  • Exporting logs: For further analysis or integration into Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems, these logs can be exported to disk. This capability allows for a more in-depth evaluation of database activity.
  • Monitoring information: CrateDB doesn't stop at logging and exporting. It also collects monitoring information, which can be reported using Java Management Extensions (JMX). This creates an additional layer of oversight for your database management.
  • Integration with monitoring tools: The information collected can be forwarded to popular cloud-native monitoring tools like Prometheus. This integration permits real-time tracking of database performance and usage.
