defmodule Logger do
@moduledoc ~S"""
A logger for Elixir applications.
It includes many features:
* Provides debug, info, warn, and error levels.
* Supports multiple backends which are automatically
supervised when plugged into `Logger`.
* Formats and truncates messages on the client
to avoid clogging `Logger` backends.
* Alternates between sync and async modes to remain
performant when required but also apply backpressure
when under stress.
* Integrates with Erlang's [`:logger`](`:logger`)
to convert terms to Elixir syntax.
Logging is useful for tracking when an event of interest happens in your
system. For example, it may be helpful to log whenever a user is deleted.
def delete_user(user) do"Deleting user from the system: #{inspect(user)}")
# ...
The `` macro emits the provided message at the `:info`
level. Note the arguments given to `info/2` will only be evaluated
if a message is logged. For instance, if the Logger level is
set to `:warning`, `:info` messages are never logged and therefore
the arguments given above won't even be executed.
There are additional macros for other levels.
Logger also allows log commands to be removed altogether via the
`:compile_time_purge_matching` option (see below).
For dynamically logging messages, see `bare_log/3`. But note that
`bare_log/3` always evaluates its arguments (unless the argument
is an anonymous function).
## Levels
The supported levels, ordered by importance, are:
* `:emergency` - when system is unusable, panics
* `:alert` - for alerts, actions that must be taken immediately,
ex. corrupted database
* `:critical` - for critical conditions
* `:error` - for errors
* `:warning` - for warnings
* `:notice` - for normal, but significant, messages
* `:info` - for information of any kind
* `:debug` - for debug-related messages
For example, `:info` takes precedence over `:debug`. If your log
level is set to `:info`, then all `:info`, `:notice` and above will
be passed to backends. If your log level is set to `:alert`, only
`:alert` and `:emergency` will be printed.
## Metadata
Whenever a message is logged, additional information can be given
via metadata. Each log operation, such as ``, allows
metadata to be given as an argument.
Furthermore, metadata can be set per process with `Logger.metadata/1`.
Some metadata, however, is always added automatically by Logger
whenever possible. Those are:
* `:application` - the current application
* `:mfa` - the current module, function and arity
* `:file` - the current file
* `:line` - the current line
* `:pid` - the current process identifier
* `:initial_call` - the initial call that started the process
* `:registered_name` - the process registered name as an atom
* `:domain` - a list of domains for the logged message. For example,
all Elixir reports default to `[:elixir]`. Erlang reports may start
with `[:otp]` or `[:sasl]`
* `:crash_reason` - a two-element tuple with the throw/error/exit reason
as first argument and the stacktrace as second. A throw will always be
`{:nocatch, term}`. An error is always an `Exception` struct. All other
entries are exits. The console backend ignores this metadata by default
but it can be useful to other backends, such as the ones that report
errors to third-party services
Note that all metadata is optional and may not always be available.
The `:mfa`, `:file`, `:line`, and similar metadata are automatically
included when using `Logger` macros. `Logger.bare_log/3` does not include
any metadata beyond the `:pid` by default. Other metadata, such as
`:crash_reason`, `:initial_call`, and `:registered_name` are available
only inside behaviours such as GenServer, Supervisor, and others.
For example, you might wish to include a custom `:error_code` metadata in
your logs:
Logger.error("We have a problem", [error_code: :pc_load_letter])
In your app's logger configuration, you would need to include the
`:error_code` key and you would need to include `$metadata` as part of
your log format template:
config :logger, :console,
format: "[$level] $message $metadata\n",
metadata: [:error_code, :file]
Your logs might then receive lines like this:
[error] We have a problem error_code=pc_load_letter file=lib/app.ex
## Configuration
`Logger` supports a wide range of configurations.
This configuration is split in three categories:
* Application configuration - must be set before the `:logger`
application is started
* Runtime configuration - can be set before the `:logger`
application is started, but may be changed during runtime
* Erlang configuration - options that handle integration with
Erlang's logging facilities
### Application configuration
The following configuration must be set via config files (such as
`config/config.exs`) before the `:logger` application is started.
* `:backends` - the backends to be used. Defaults to `[:console]`.
See the "Backends" section for more information.
* `:compile_time_application` - sets the `:application` metadata value
to the configured value at compilation time. This configuration is
automatically set by Mix and made available as metadata when logging.
* `:compile_time_purge_matching` - purges *at compilation time* all calls
that match the given conditions. This means that `Logger` calls with
level lower than this option will be completely removed at compile time,
accruing no overhead at runtime. This configuration expects a list of
keyword lists. Each keyword list contains a metadata key and the matching
value that should be purged. Some special keys are supported:
* `:level_lower_than` - purges all messages with a lower logger level
* `:module` - purges all messages with the matching module
* `:function` - purges all messages with the "function/arity"
Remember that if you want to purge log calls from a dependency, the
dependency must be recompiled.
* `:start_options` - passes start options to Logger's main process, such
as `:spawn_opt` and `:hibernate_after`. All options in `t:GenServer.option/0`
are accepted, except `:name`.
For example, to configure the `:backends` and purge all calls that happen
at compile time with level lower than `:info` in a `config/config.exs` file:
config :logger,
backends: [:console],
compile_time_purge_matching: [
[level_lower_than: :info]
If you want to purge all log calls from an application named `:foo` and only
keep errors from ``, you can set up two different matches:
config :logger,
compile_time_purge_matching: [
[application: :foo],
[module: Bar, function: "foo/3", level_lower_than: :error]
### Runtime Configuration
All configuration below can be set via config files (such as
`config/config.exs`) but also changed dynamically during runtime via
* `:level` - the logging level. Attempting to log any message
with severity less than the configured level will simply
cause the message to be ignored. Keep in mind that each backend
may have its specific level, too. In addition to levels mentioned
above it also support 2 "meta-levels":
- `:all` - all messages will be logged, conceptually identical to
- `:none` - no messages will be logged at all
* `:utc_log` - when `true`, uses UTC in logs. By default it uses
local time (i.e., it defaults to `false`).
* `:truncate` - the maximum message size to be logged (in bytes).
Defaults to 8192 bytes. Note this configuration is approximate.
Truncated messages will have `" (truncated)"` at the end.
The atom `:infinity` can be passed to disable this behavior.
* `:sync_threshold` - if the `Logger` manager has more than
`:sync_threshold` messages in its queue, `Logger` will change
to *sync mode*, to apply backpressure to the clients.
`Logger` will return to *async mode* once the number of messages
in the queue is reduced to one below the `sync_threshold`.
Defaults to 20 messages. `:sync_threshold` can be set to `0` to
force *sync mode*.
* `:discard_threshold` - if the `Logger` manager has more than
`:discard_threshold` messages in its queue, `Logger` will change
to *discard mode* and messages will be discarded directly in the
clients. `Logger` will return to *sync mode* once the number of
messages in the queue is reduced to one below the `discard_threshold`.
Defaults to 500 messages.
* `:discard_threshold_periodic_check` - a periodic check that
checks and reports if logger is discarding messages. It logs a warning
message whenever the system is (or continues) in discard mode and
it logs a warning message whenever if the system was discarding messages
but stopped doing so after the previous check. By default it runs
every `30_000` milliseconds.
* `:translator_inspect_opts` - when translating OTP reports and
errors, the last message and state must be inspected in the
error reports. This configuration allow developers to change
how much and how the data should be inspected.
For example, to configure the `:level` and `:truncate` options in a
`config/config.exs` file:
config :logger,
level: :warning,
truncate: 4096
### Erlang/OTP integration
From Elixir v1.10, Elixir's Logger is fully integrated with Erlang's
logger. They share the same `Logger.level/0`, any metadata set with
`Logger.metadata/1` applies to both, and so on.
Elixir also supports formatting Erlang reports using Elixir syntax.
This can be controlled with two configurations:
* `:handle_otp_reports` - redirects OTP reports to `Logger` so
they are formatted in Elixir terms. This effectively disables
Erlang standard logger. Defaults to `true`.
* `:handle_sasl_reports` - redirects supervisor, crash and
progress reports to `Logger` so they are formatted in Elixir
terms. Your application must guarantee `:sasl` is started before
`:logger`. This means you may see some initial reports written
in Erlang syntax until the Logger application kicks in.
Defaults to `false`. This option only has an effect if
`:handle_otp_reports` is true.
For example, to configure `Logger` to redirect all Erlang messages using a
`config/config.exs` file:
config :logger,
handle_otp_reports: true,
handle_sasl_reports: true
Furthermore, `Logger` allows messages sent by Erlang to be translated
into an Elixir format via translators. Translators can be added at any
time with the `add_translator/1` and `remove_translator/1` APIs. Check
`Logger.Translator` for more information.
## Backends
`Logger` supports different backends where log messages are written to.
The available backends by default are:
* `:console` - logs messages to the console (enabled by default).
`:console` is simply a shortcut for `Logger.Backends.Console`.
Developers may also implement their own backends, an option that
is explored in more detail below.
The initial backends are loaded via the `:backends` configuration,
which must be set before the `:logger` application is started.
However, by the time the Logger application starts, the code for your
own and third-party backends may not yet be available. For this reason,
it is preferred to add and remove backends via `add_backend/2` and
`remove_backend/2` functions. This is often done in your
`c:Application.start/2` callback:
@impl true
def start(_type, _args) do
The backend can be configured either on the `add_backend/2` call:
@impl true
def start(_type, _args) do
Logger.add_backend(MyCustomBackend, some_config: ...)
Or in your config files:
config :logger, MyCustomBackend,
some_config: ...
### Elixir custom backends
Any developer can create their own `Logger` backend. Since `Logger`
is an event manager powered by `:gen_event`, writing a new backend
is a matter of creating an event handler, as described in the
[`:gen_event`](`:gen_event`) documentation.
From now on, we will be using the term "event handler" to refer
to your custom backend, as we head into implementation details.
Once the `:logger` application starts, it installs all event handlers
listed under the `:backends` configuration into the `Logger` event
manager. The event manager and all added event handlers are automatically
supervised by `Logger`.
Note that if a backend fails to start by returning `{:error, :ignore}`
from its `init/1` callback, then it's not added to the backends but
nothing fails. If a backend fails to start by returning `{:error, reason}`
from its `init/1` callback, the `:logger` application will fail to start.
Once initialized, the handler should be designed to handle the
following events:
* `{level, group_leader, {Logger, message, timestamp, metadata}}` where:
* `level` is one of `:debug`, `:info`, `:warn`, or `:error`, as previously
described (for compatibility with pre 1.10 backends the `:notice` will
be translated to `:info` and all messages above `:error` will be translated
to `:error`)
* `group_leader` is the group leader of the process which logged the message
* `{Logger, message, timestamp, metadata}` is a tuple containing information
about the logged message:
* the first element is always the atom `Logger`
* `message` is the actual message (as chardata)
* `timestamp` is the timestamp for when the message was logged, as a
`{{year, month, day}, {hour, minute, second, millisecond}}` tuple
* `metadata` is a keyword list of metadata used when logging the message
* `:flush`
It is recommended that handlers ignore messages where the group
leader is in a different node than the one where the handler is
installed. For example:
def handle_event({_level, gl, {Logger, _, _, _}}, state)
when node(gl) != node() do
{:ok, state}
In the case of the event `:flush` handlers should flush any pending
data. This event is triggered by `Logger.flush/0`.
Furthermore, backends can be configured via the `configure_backend/2`
function which requires event handlers to handle calls of the
following format:
{:configure, options}
where `options` is a keyword list. The result of the call is the result
returned by `configure_backend/2`. The recommended return value for
successful configuration is `:ok`. For example:
def handle_call({:configure, options}, state) do
new_state = reconfigure_state(state, options)
{:ok, :ok, new_state}
It is recommended that backends support at least the following configuration
* `:level` - the logging level for that backend
* `:format` - the logging format for that backend
* `:metadata` - the metadata to include in that backend
Check the `Logger.Backends.Console` implementation in Elixir's codebase
for examples on how to handle the recommendations in this section and
how to process the existing options.
### Erlang/OTP handlers
While Elixir Logger provides backends, Erlang/OTP logger provides handlers.
They represent the same concept: the ability to integrate into the logging
system to handle each logged message/event.
However, implementation-wise, they have the following differences:
* Elixir backends run in a separate process which comes with overload
protection. However, because this process is a single GenEvent, any
long running action should be avoided, as it can lead to bottlenecks
in the system
* Erlang handlers run in the same process as the process logging the
message/event. This gives developers more flexibility but they should
avoid performing any long running action in such handlers, as it may
slow down the action being executed considerably. At the moment, there
is no built-in overload protection for Erlang handlers, so it is your
responsibility to implement it
The good news is that developers can use third-party implementations of
both Elixir backends and Erlang handlers. We have already covered Elixir
backends, so let's see how to add Erlang/OTP handlers.
Erlang/OTP handlers must be listed under your own application:
config :my_app, :logger, [
{:handler, :name_of_the_handler, ACustomHandler, configuration = %{}}
And then, explicitly attached in your `c:Application.start/2` callback:
Note we do not recommend configuring Erlang/OTP's logger directly under
the `:kernel` application in your `config/config.exs`, like this:
# Not recommended:
config :kernel, :logger, ...
This is because by the time Elixir starts, Erlang's kernel has already
been started, which means the configuration above would have no effect.
