Fixed in 8.0.17.

The mysql client program now sends os_user and os_sudouser connection attributes, when available, to indicate the name of the operating system user running the program and the value of the SUDO_USER environment variable, respectively. For general information about connection attributes, see Performance Schema Connection Attribute Tables. Thanks to Daniël van Eeden for the contribution on which this feature was based.
