Utilities to list log files generated by CANedge loggers

Project description

CANedge Browser - List Devices & Log Files (Local, S3 Server)

This package lets you easily list CANedge CAN data log files. Simply specify the source (local disk or S3 server) and the start/stop period. The listed log files can then be used with other packages such as mdf_iter and can_decoder.

Key features

1. Extract a subset of log files between a start/stop date & time


Use pip to install the canedge_browser module:

pip install canedge_browser


  • fsspec (required)
  • mdf_iter (required)

Module usage example

In the below example, we list log files between two dates from a MinIO S3 server:

import canedge_browser
import s3fs
from datetime import datetime, timezone

fs = s3fs.S3FileSystem(
        "endpoint_url": "http://address.of.remote.s3.server:9000",

devices = ["<bucket>/23AD1AEA", "<bucket>/86373F4D"]
start = datetime(year=2020, month=8, day=4, hour=10, tzinfo=timezone.utc)
stop = datetime(year=2020, month=9, day=9, tzinfo=timezone.utc)

log_files = canedge_browser.get_log_files(fs, devices, start_date=start, stop_date=stop)

print("Found a total of {} log files".format(len(log_files)))
for log_file in log_files:

Regarding timezone

NOTE: All time inputs into the library must include a timezone. If in doubt, set this to UTC (+00:00).

Regarding S3 server types

The examples show how to connect to a MinIO S3 server. If you need to connect to e.g. an AWS S3 server, simply use the relevant endpoint (e.g.

Connecting to a TLS-enabled MinIO S3 server

To connect to a MinIO S3 server where TLS is enabled via a self-signed certificate, you can connect via the syntax below:

fs = s3fs.S3FileSystem(
        "endpoint_url": "https://address.of.remote.s3.server:9000",
        "verify": "path/to/cert.crt",

Using the local filesystem instead of S3.

The fsspec package allows for a variety of filesystems to be used for storage, given that the structure of the files follows that of CANedge devices.

For utilizing the local filesystem instead of S3, the following snippet can be used:

from fsspec.implementations.local import LocalFileSystem
fs = LocalFileSystem()

Note that all paths are relative to the root /. For POSIX systems, this will likely follow the normal filesystem structure. Windows systems gets a slightly mangled syntax, such that C:\Some folder\a subfolder\the target file.MF4 becomes /C:/Some folder/a subfolder/the target file.MF4.
