Python Logger plugin to send logs to Logentries

Project description

This is a plugin library to enable logging to Logentries from the Python Logger. Logentries is a real-time log management service on the cloud. More info at Note that this plugin is asynchronous.


To use this library, you must first create an account on Logentries. This will only take a few moments.


To install this library, use the following command:

pip install logentries


#!/usr/bin/env python

from logentries import LogentriesHandler
import logging

log = logging.getLogger('logentries')
test = LogentriesHandler(LOGENTRIES_TOKEN)


log.warn("Warning message")"Info message")



The parameter LOGENTRIES_TOKEN needs to be filled in to point to a file in your Logentries account.

In your Logentries account, create a logfile, selecting Token TCP as the source_type. This will print a Token UUID. This is the value to use for LOGENTRIES_TOKEN.

The appender will attempt to send your log data over TLS over port 443, otherwise it will send over port 80.

You are now ready to start logging
