Stuff to correlate requests, logs, and the like

Project description

Version Status License Documentation

This sprocket provides a single mix-in that imbues your RequestHandler with a unique correlation ID. If a correlation ID is present upon input then it will be preserved in the output. It is also available for your use as the correlation_id property.


sprockets.mixins.correlation is available on the Python Package Index and can be installed via pip:

$ pip install sprockets.mixins.correlation


from sprockets.mixins import correlation
from tornado import ioloop, web

class Handler(correlation.HandlerMixin, web.RequestHandler):
   def get(self):
      self.finish('my id is {0}'.format(self.correlation_id)

if __name__ == '__main__':
   application = web.Application([('/', Handler)])
