Subject Re: Phoenix Query Server query logging

No, I don't believe there is any log4j logging done in PQS that would show
queries being executed.

Ideally, we would have a "query log" in Phoenix which would present an
interface to this data and it wouldn't require anything special in PQS.
However, I wouldn't be opposed to some trivial additions to PQS (Avatica,
really) to add a simple logging as a stopgap.

I hadn't seen a reply to my earlier question.

We have business analysts running queries using BI tools (like Tableau)
which connect via the Phoenix Query Server.

How can we log all SELECT queries (raw query, start time, end time, etc...)?

Any way to tweak log4j or other properties to get this?  The TRACE logging
I tried (mentioned in my post above) was way too dense to be useful for
reporting usage, and doesn't seem to show the full SQL query params and
query start/end times.  Also, it logs every UPSERT during data load (which
overwhelms the log files).  We really just need SELECTS logged.
