Splunk doesn't really do database change monitoring directly, but there are a few ways to approach it.

Listed in order of preference:

  • Configure MySQL to log all queries, then have Splunk index the log file, and monitor for DDL commands (`CREATE`, `UPDATE`, `ALTER`, etc.).

  • Use a third-party database monitoring product that generates output in a text-based format that can be indexed by Splunk.

  • Roll your own using scripted inputs. Either generate snapshots from the database containing the information you want to monitor and use `diff`, or watch for the changes yourself. This option will likely be painful.


If you are going to go with the first option, these may help get you started:
