Log handler that ships json formatted messages to logstash via TCP and UDP

Project Description

logstashHandler is a basic logging handler for sending to a logstash instance via UDP or TCP encoded as json.

Basic usage

Setup an input on the relevant logstash server:

input {
  udp {
    port => 12345
    codec => json

Setup handler and ship logs:

from logstashHandler import logstashHandler

lhandler = logstashHandler(host='',port=12345,proto='UDP')
logger.warn("Something went wrong")

To send additional fields to logstash, use the keyword extra and send a dict starting with extraFields:

logger.warn('DANGER DANGER',extra={'extraFields':{'name':'W. Robinsson', 'planet':'Unkown'}})

The default level field name and individual level names can be overridden as so:

levels = {'ERROR': 3, 'WARNING': 2, 'INFO': 1, 'DEBUG': 0}
lhandler = logstashHandler(

More info can be found on the github page.
