Hi @ckkyoung,

#1, These operations seem not records into power bi trace logs, I think you can check on your database side to review these sessions or activity logs.

MySQL :: MySQL 5.7 Reference Manual :: 5.4 MySQL Server Logs

#2, You can refer to the following link to check which port your database works on:

unix - How to check what port mysql is running on - Server Fault

#3, I think you need to check the 'data provider' version and current device setting to confirm if you used the correct version and configure the firewall and ports settings that the data connection required.

Power Query MySQL database connector | Microsoft Docs

#4, Perhaps you can try to use the UDL test to verify the data source connections to confirm if your device is availed to link to the database. (if your database are host in the internal network, please enable the VPN or proxy on your device first)
