A utility to download AWS RDS logs
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.
Make sure you already have installed
Python 3.4 (Python 2 is not supported)
Install from PyPI:
pip install rds-log
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.
Creating a new release:
git tag x.x.x python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel twine upload dist/*x.x.x*
