Project Description


This recipe creates the program daemon (logger) which is listening to the socket. It generates logs in an appropriate format (JSON, CSV, PICKLE).

Example usage

The simplest way to use this recipe is to add it to your buildout.cfg like this:

parts = logger

recipe = collective.recipe.logger

Go to collective/recipe/logger/README.rst to see more details.


Supported options

The recipe supports the following options (none of which are needed by default):

It’s a host ip. Default value: localhost
It’s an application (daemon) port. Default value: 8090 (DEFAULT_TCP_LOGGING_PORT)
It’s a circular buffer size. Default value: 100. It means that you can store 100 records into storage.
It’s file mode bits which is intended to the file storage. Default value: 0644
It’s a storage type. Options: ‘csv’, ‘json’, ‘pickle’. Default value: ‘json’
It sets up additional products. They help serialize objects. For example, your object will not be a standard python collection so you need an appropriate class for this object. If you use Plone I recommend you set up eggs = ${instance:eggs}


  • A storage filename is generated by id_generator (src/collective/recipe/logger/
