UDPLog

What is this?

UDPLog is a system for emitting application log events via UDP and shipping them via RabbitMQ or Scribe for further processing. The idea is that the applications sends its structured log events to a dedicated shipping daemon on the same machine, which in turn passes it on to one or more remote services. As this uses UDP, emitting events is non-blocking fire-and-forget. An application like Logstash can then be used to process and store log events.

Requirements

  • simplejson
  • Twisted (optional for Twisted logging support and requisite for the server-side shippers)
  • txAMQP (for shipping to RabbitMQ)
  • scribe (for shipping to Scribe)
  • thrift (for shipping to Scribe)

To generate the documentation:

  • docutils
  • Sphinx
  • pydoctor (including apilinks_sphinxext.py)
  • epydoc
