I'm trying to debug a Python script and in doing so placed some logging statements into the script.
Following these posts for the basics:
Logging from Python in Splunk
Python logging in splunk
I'm going off the simple statement here
"You can also just call logging directly and your logs will appear in python.log:"
logging.warning("Something bad happened: %s", "out of memory")
so my code looks just like
Running it using the Splunk CLI command:
splunk cmd python ./confcheck_correlation_searches.py
And yet still nothing in python.log. Any ideas what I'm missing here?
The first link you showed has the answer wrapped up in a function. Here it is without being wrapped into a function:
# create logger object for logging - see https://docs.python.org/2/howto/logging.html for details
logger = logging.getLogger('confcheck_correlation_searches.py')
fh = logging.FileHandler('/var/log/splunk/confcheck_correlation_searches.log')
formatter = logging.Formatter('%(asctime)s | src="%(name)s" | lvl="%(levelname)s" | msg="%(message)s"')
Note, you may wish to change the formatter... i just grabbed the first example I had.
Yes I noticed this, but if you read further down it also states that
"You can also just call logging directly and your logs will appear in python.log"
As I followed in my example.
