The core daemon and backend parts of the Auth2db log engine
Auth2db uses MySQL database to store logs, whichs allows one to performe
a separated multi-client to single DB storage, turning the tedious
work of constants auditing into a trivial and enjoyable experience
Note that either mariadb-server or mysql-server is needed in this scheme,
but the server itself could be located anywhere on the network
