Lightweight logstash_formatter logging initializer

Project description

GIQLogging is a lightweight logging initializer to promote standardized log formats across services. It wraps the functionality of logging with formatting provided by Exoscale’s python-logstash-formatter.

import GIQLogging
logging = GIQLogging.init(logstash_type='servicename',
                          extra_fields={'foo': 'bar', 'hello': 'world'})'log message')


To install GIQLogging, simply:

pip install GIQLogging


  • In Graphiq’s case, GIQLogging is specifically intended for services to log JSON output to be picked up and visualized using an ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana) stack. As such, we require the logstash_type value to be set upon initialization. This value is placed as an extra_field and output to each log entry for later use by Logstash.
  • The default level if one is not provided is logging.DEBUG
  • If a logpath is not provided the log will be directed to sys.stdout
  • logger_name is optional, only necessary if initializing multiple loggers
  • extra_fields are optional
