MariaDB Log Rotation

Modern Linux Systems have a mechanism called logrotate to rotate different log files.

The general configuration file is located under /etc/logrotate.conf and specific changes are under /etc/logrotate.d/

By default the logrotate job is started once a day by a O/S cron.daily job: /etc/cron.daily/logrotate

Logging Galera Cluster conflicts

We typically suggest our customers to use our MySQL/Galera Cluster my.cnf configuration template to avoid MySQL configuration and performance problems.

And we are paranoid as well. Thus we enable all useful logging:

wsrep_log_conflicts = 1

But this has also some consequences of more visibility...

Logging users to the MySQL error log

Problem

A customer recently showed up with the following problem:

With your guidelines [ 1 ] I am now able to send the MySQL error log to the syslog and in particular to an external log server.
But I cannot see which user connects to the database in the error log.

How can I achieve this?

Idea

During night when I slept my brain worked independently on this problem and in the morning he had prepared a possible solution for it.
