An animal that eats logs
Beaver (n) - an animal that eats logs
beaver parses log files based on a given date and time range, so you don't have to
Perhaps you'd like to see the logs for your project since the last time you pushed to production last Wednesday. This can be accomplished easily with
$ python3 beaver.py Wednesday to today >> logfile1.log 2019-04-03 15:10:26,618 - simple_example - DEBUG - debug message 2019-04-03 15:12:45,124 - simple_example - DEBUG - debug message ...
All of the following examples will work:
python3 beaver.py 10:35 to 11:35 python3 beaver.py yesterday to today python3 beaver.py Mar 2nd, 2012 to now python3 beaver.py 2017-06-18 to May 3rd 2018 at 3:17pm python3 beaver.py 1:23pm on August 15th 2017 to 10:35 PM on 2 April 2018
...and many more!
More coming soon...
usage: beaver.py [-h] [-f FILE] [-o OUTPUT] [-r] range [range ...] Beaver (n) - an animal that eats logs positional arguments: range the range for which to parse logs optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -f FILE, --file FILE a specific log file to parse (default: ) -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT if included, the file to which output will be writen (default: ) -r, --recursive if included, beaver will search for log files recursively starting from the current directory (default: False)
rangeis composed in the form of
START to END, where START and END can be almost any valid datetime format. If
beavercan't understand you, it will ask for clarification.
- Note that any datetime format that contains days, months, and years must either have days > months > years or years > months > days. The American format (06/18/1996 for June 18th, 1996) is not supported because it creates ambiguity.
--file- use this if you only want to parse a specific file, not all log files. By default,
beaversearches the current directory for any files ending in
--output- write output to a file, rather than
--recursive- look for log files recursively, starting in the current directory
