logging problems


I'm currently using python 2.3.4 and I'm having problem with the logging module.

Occasionally when logging something with exc_info=True it just hangs, nothing is
logged, and software cannot continue executing.

By drilling down into logging package and adding rather many print statements
into logging/__init__.py it seems like the "import traceback" in
formatException (self, ei) fails.


print sys.modules["traceback"]
import traceback
print "Hello World"
sys.stdout.flus h()

just renders: <module 'traceback' from 'C:\Python23\li b\traceback.pyc '> in the
console, and no "Hello World"

I'm running out of ideas what to try next, so suggestions/ideas appreciated!

Works fine on Python 2.4 for Windows.

That's a very strange failure condition. Perhaps something is wrong with your
Python installation. Have you edited any other system modules besides logging?

I would try a clean installation of the newest version and see if that fixes

I probably did not mention it, but I've used traceback module in other
places, and it works fine.

We've been planning to upgrade to 2.4 but unfortunately I cannot do
that right now, and no, I have not messed with any other system modules.

Hi, while working on something in my current project I have made several improvements to the logging package in Python, two of them are worth mentioning: 1. addition of a logging record field %(function)s, which results in the name of the entity which logged the record.

Let's say we log exceptions to the windows application event log using the Exception Management Application Block. Is there a pattern that can be used so the exception is logged only once and not everytime up through the call chain? Is there anything a caller can key off of to check to see if it should also log the exception?

Hi everyone. I've just been trying to add a bit more granularity to my logging code, as the jump from INFO (level 20) to DEBUG (level 10) is a bit too big. I was thinking of borrowing a few levels from java: fine (18), finer (16) and finest(14). This is what I've tried: log = logging.getLogger(appName)

I'm using the logging module in my comtypes library to log 'interesting' things that happen. In other words, the idea is if the user of the library is interested in the details that happen in the package internally, he (she?) would configure a logging level and handlers that write the log messages where it is convenient. This works great,...
