A utility to download AWS RDS logs

Project description

A small utility to download/stream logs from Amazon AWS RDS to a local directory. When started, all log files will be downloaded, and the latest file will be watched for changes.

Installation

Make sure you already have installed

Install from PyPI:

pip install rds-log

Usage

rds-log-stream will find AWS credentials in ~/.aws/credentials or environment variables. rds-log-stream uses boto3 and finds credentials/config in the same locations.

Set up ~/.aws/credentials with AWS authentication details:

[default]
aws_access_key_id = <your access key id>
aws_secret_access_key = <your secret key>

Set up ~/.aws/config to point to your region:

[default]
region = eu-central-1

An alternative is to set up environment variables:

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID="<your access key id>"
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY="<your secret key>"
export AWS_DEFAULT_REGION="<your aws region>"

Run rds-log-stream with your database identifier and directory to store logs:

rds-log-stream yourdbinstance /your/log/destination

/your/log/destination will be populated with all current RDS logs and continously updated with new messages as they arrive.

Development

Creating a new release:

git tag x.x.x
python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel
twine upload dist/*x.x.x*
