IOError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe

I have a problem with the logging module.

It reports a Broken Pipe error after outputing to the log file
occasionally (5%). This does not appear to happen on Mac OSX using
current finked python (2.3.3) but does appear to occur on Python 2.3.4
running on a very old Redhat Linux xxxxx 2.2.14-5.0 #1 Tue Mar 7
21:07:39 EST 2000 i686. The actual logged error follows my signature.
Note that "files used:-" has been sent to the file.

From a previous suggestion I had the following lines in my logger setup.

import logging
import signal
import types
logger = logging.getLogger('pathprofile')
hdlr = logging.FileHandler('/var/log/pathprofile/pathprofile.log')
formatter = logging.Formatter('%(asctime)s %(levelname)s %(message)s')
hdlr.setFormatter(formatter)
logger.addHandler(hdlr)
logger.setLevel(logging.INFO)
signal.signal(signal.SIGPIPE, signal.SIG_DFL) # for assynchronous
logging

Thanks for any enlightenment.

I am not sure at all. Since your email I have reviewed your
documentation and now see the raiseExceptions variable. I presume that
I simply use
logging.raiseExceptions = False
after
import logging

I used signal.SIGPIPE after googling for Broken Pipe. I think I will
remove that line.

Random tests I have devised have not revealed this error but Random
input from others has generated the problem, usually after a burst of
activity when previously there has been no activity for several days.
Coincidence?

Thank you very much for your help - and a very useful module.

Yes.

Perhaps not. It may be that the pipe breaks after a period of
inactivity, and subsequent activity shows up the break.

Best of luck,

Vinay
