MariaDB Audit "OS hostname" empty

  • 1.  MariaDB Audit "OS hostname" empty

    Hi Community

    I found in one of our customers, while checking audit records, that OS hostname (client doing the query) is empty when is about mariaDB.  For MSSQL is fine. I can see the hostname of the query issuer.

    Then, I reproduce this in my lab

    1- Is this a limitation of the agent for mariaDB?

    2- Here a screenshot of part of the audit. As you see, for MSSQL there is not problem at all. 

    3- The Os hostname "daitek-vm" that you see in the previous picture, it's not resolved by dns. Also, I checked DNS en GWs and MX. they are resolving. 

    4- I conducted another test, this time assigning a FQDN to the vm that is issuing the query.  Same results.  Nothing. Still OS hostname empty

    any idea?
