Athena Query Result


Hi Team,

I followed the steps to create a table in AWS Athena to query VPC flow logs as mentioned here :

when I ran the following query in Athena, I had output like this :

r����Z�~:�63y�pt���j��0��_��	�])h}�q ���A�ھ�K����3��肌���cf``������"����	����"������&���xL"E��M�E��M1E��B2

is this because my S3 bucket that contains the VPC flow logs is Encrypted with KMS?

Thank you,

You've probably covered the basics but it's hard to tell from the info provided, so

  • are you using an Athena table set up for the same data format as your flow logs, i.e Parquet format or not?
  • are your flow logs in the default format or custom, and does your Athena table DDL match?

  • it logs in custom format, yes the DDL match
