Why am I unable to set up logging to debug my python script?

Hello,

I am trying to activate the logging in order to debug my python script.
I have followed the documentation located at:
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.0/AdvancedDev/ModInputsLog

SPLUNK_HOME/etc/log.cfg had already category.ExecProcessor=INFO

And the code is basically the same as the example:

set up logging suitable for splunkd consumption

logging.root
logging.root.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
formatter = logging.Formatter('%(levelname)s %(message)s')
handler = logging.StreamHandler(stream=sys.stderr)
handler.setFormatter(formatter)
logging.root.addHandler(handler)
logging.info("LOGGING INFO HELLO.")
logging.debug("LOGGING DEBUG HELLO")

My entry is not logged in SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log
I have no index=_internal ExecProcessor.
I found an index names splunklogger, but it does not contain any event.

Hello MuS,
Yes I did.
Is the logging working correctly with the procedure provided by Splunk documentation?

Yes, that's the way to log events from your script into splunkd.log. Here is another example http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.0/AdvancedDev/ModInputsExample
