Description of Issue/Question

After upgrading to 2018.3.0 the scheduled module executions with carbon returners stopped sending their returner.

Steps to Reproduce Issue

(Include debug logs if possible and relevant.)

In the minion logs I get :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/utils/", line 729, in handle_func
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/returners/", line 302, in returner
    _send(saltdata, metric_base, opts)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/returners/", line 253, in _send
    _walk(metric_base, saltdata, metrics, timestamp, skip)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/returners/", line 204, in _walk
    'timestamp: %s', path, value, metrics, timestamp

    return Logger.log(self, *args, **kwargs)

    self._log(level, msg, args, **kwargs)

    self, level, msg, args, exc_info=exc_info, extra=extra
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/logging/", line 1278, in _log
    record = self.makeRecord(, level, fn, lno, msg, args, exc_info, func, extra)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/celery/utils/", line 271, in makeRecord
    record = Logger.makeRecord(self, *args, **kwds)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/log/", line 375, in makeRecord
    exc_info, func)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/log/", line 209, in __init__
    self.colormsg = '%s%s%s' % (cmsg, self.getMessage(), reset)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/logging/", line 335, in getMessage
    msg = msg % self.args
TypeError: not all arguments converted during string formatting

Commenting the log.trace lines fixes solves my problem (insert pink sombrero here).

@arthurlogilab Thanks for the report. Looks like there is an issue with that log statement that you commented out, too many arguments perhaps. Which one was it exactly in which file?

it looks like an extra comma was added.

-    log.trace('Carbon return walking path: {0}, value: {1}, metrics: {2}, timestamp: {3}'.format(path, value, metrics, timestamp))
+    log.trace(
+        'Carbon return walking path: %s, value: %s, metrics: %s, ',
+        'timestamp: %s', path, value, metrics, timestamp
+    )

code should be:
        'Carbon return walking path: %s, value: %s, metrics: %s, '             
         'timestamp: %s', path, value, metrics, timestamp
