Open edX Caliper Tracking


Open edX Caliper Tracking can be used to transform the edX traditional event logs into Caliper Analytics Specifications provided by IMS Global. Generated logs can be consumed by any analytics application which is compatible with Caliper Standard.


To install openedx-caliper-tracking in your Open edX installation, please add the following line to your requirements file. (For most Open edX installations it should be located at edx-platform/requirements/edx/base.txt):



To enable and use openedx-caliper-tracking:

Please add ENABLE_EVENT_CALIPERIZATION flag under FEATURES in the following files:

  • /edx/app/edxapp/lms.env.json
  • /edx/app/edxapp/cms.env.json

These files should be located at /edx/app/edxapp/ directory, see the example below:




Location of Transformed Logs

Transformed events are logged using 'logging.handlers.SysLogHandler' with 'facility: local2'.

We need to create output files manually and set appropriate permissions for syslog user. To do so, please follow the steps below:

  1. Create a log file with read/write permissions given to syslog user e.g: /edx/var/log/caliper-analytics/caliper.log

  2. Create a mapping for 'local2' in the configuration files present in /etc/rsyslog.d/

    local2.*                 /edx/var/log/caliper-analytics/caliper.log
