Project description

PyPI Python Versions


The LogFit daemon watches log files and sends data to the LogFit app for analysis.




# Start in foreground mode
python3 logfit/ [run|foreground]

# Start in daemon mode
python3 logfit/ start

# Stop daemon
python3 logfit/ stop

# Restart the daemon
python3 logfit/ restart

# Get the daemon status
python3 logfit/ status


The daemon can read from a logfit_config.yaml config file of the format:

# Required: Get this from your account
source: "64a4b9bd88f14511926e0de86f23e2d8"

# Optional: The directory the daemon will watch
watch_directory: "/var/log/"

# Optional: Minimum log level.  Possible options are
# critical, error, warning, info, and debug
log_level: "warning"

# Optional: File to write daemon logs to
log_file: "logfit.log"

# Optional: limit watching log files to given mime types
- text/plain
- inode/x-empty

# Optional: List of file globs to not watch, should be the
# full absolute path
ignore_paths: []
