      Description

      Currently, PMM recommends very high privileges for a lot of data. For example, even granting process grants can expose data because it outputs raw queries

       

      It would be very useful if the documentation explained the reasoning for the different grants so that we could tune the grants to match what we use PMM for. I am currently investigating this on my own, and am willing to contribute what I find during my investigations, but it might be helpful if someone more familiar with the project did this as well
