This release includes the following changes:
PT-1500: Added the --output=secure-slowlog option to pt-query-digestto replace queries in the output by their fingerprints. This provides the ability to santize a slow log, as the slow query log has the potential to leak sensitive information since query WHERE clauses are included.
As an example of how the fingerprint anonymizes queries we’ll show this using an UPDATE statement:
UPDATE sbtest12 SET k=‘abc’ WHERE id=12345
after fingerprinting, it becomes:
UPDATE sbtest? SET k=k? WHERE id=?
PT-1492: pt-kill in version 3.0.7 ignores the value of the --busy-time option
[*]PT-1503: The post-install script fails on VM due to improper UUID file detection
