An observer which can handle log events.

Unlike most interfaces within Twisted, an ILogObserver must be thread-safe. Log observers may be called indiscriminately from many different threads, as any thread may wish to log a message at any time.

Method __call__ Log an event.
def __call__(event): (source)
Log an event.

A dictionary with arbitrary keys as defined by the application emitting logging events, as well as keys added by the logging system. The logging system reserves the right to set any key beginning with the prefix "log_"; applications should not use any key so named. Currently, the following keys are used by the logging system in some way, if they are present (they are all optional):

  • "log_format": a PEP-3101-style format string which draws upon the keys in the event as its values, used to format the event for human consumption.
  • "log_flattened": a dictionary mapping keys derived from the names and format values used in the "log_format" string to their values. This is used to preserve some structured information for use with twisted.logger.extractField.
  • "log_trace": A list designed to capture information about which LogPublishers have observed the event.
  • "log_level": a log level constant, indicating the importance of and audience for this event.
  • "log_namespace": a namespace for the emitter of the event, given as a str.
  • "log_system": a string indicating the network event or method call which resulted in the message being logged.
