Those specified in the DSN take precedence. hosts: ["root:secret@tcp(127.0.0.1:3306)/"] # Username of hosts. Empty by default. #username: root # Password of hosts. Empty by default. #password: secret # By setting raw to true, all raw fields from the status metricset will be added to the event. #raw: false
