Useful common logging functionality by MLZ
mlzlog is a collection of common logging functionality developed and used at MLZ.
Before you do any logging, initiate the mlz logging via:
initLogging(rootname='mlz', rootlevel='info', logdir='/var/log')
That will set up a global root logger (accesible via mlzlog.log) and attach handlers for colored console output and logfiles (in a nice version).
To get a new logger just use getChild on another logger (e.g. mlzlog.log):
# ownDir creates a new subdirectory for the desired logger name mlzlog.log.getChild('mysublogger', ownDir=True)
