Managing Auditing

Provides instructions for using MapR auditing features.

You can enable auditing of cluster administration and data-access operations using the MapR Control System and the CLI. Enabling auditing of filesystem, table, and streams operations requires running a command on a cluster, a command on individual volumes in the cluster, and a command on individual directories, files, and MapR-DB tables and streams within those volumes.

These steps are summarized in the following table:
