Asynchronous Python logging handler for Logstash.

Project description

PyPI Documentation Status CI Tests Python Versions License

Python Logstash Async is an asynchronous Python logging handler to submit log events to a remote Logstash instance.

Unlike most other Python Logstash logging handlers, this package works asynchronously by collecting log events from Python’s logging subsystem and then transmitting the collected events in a separate worker thread to Logstash. This way, the main application (or thread) where the log event occurred, doesn’t need to wait until the submission to the remote Logstash instance succeeded.

This is especially useful for applications like websites or web services or any kind of request serving API where response times matter.
