Project description

Build Status

Random Log Generator

Generator of random logs for multiple types of technologies.

This tool can generate all kinds of logs starting from templates. You should create a pattern file in YAML format foreach log that you want to generate, like in conf/patterns examples.

If more than one patterns are specified in patterns folder, all logs are generated in parallel. It’s possible to generate 100 logs in parallel.


Clone repository

git clone

and install with

$ cd log-generator

$ python install

or use pip:

$ pip install rlog-generator

Pattern file

A pattern file has many parameters.




name of log


enable/disable this pattern


path where store the log


number of logs per seconds that will be generate


eps correction percentage


how many seconds the generating is active


you can choose which generator use. The common value is template, that generate the logs from a template


logs of examples


template to use to generate logs


fields used in template

We can have two kinds of fields: - list: the list fields are used to generate random values from a given list - func: the func fields enable functions to generate the random values.

The func fields start with func_ and then have the name of function. It can also have parameters.

The func developed are: - func_randip: generate a random ip address - func_randint: generate a random integer from min to max

For more details see the examples in folder conf/patterns.

If you want to contribute with real templates, add them in patterns folder.

Command line

The installation stores on system the rlog-generator command line.
