Python Logging Handler Threaded Transport

Transport for Python logging handler

Uses a background worker to log to Cloud Logging asynchronously.

class, name, *, grace_period=5.0, batch_size=10, max_latency=0)


Asynchronous transport that uses a background thread.

  • Parameters

    • client (Client) – The Logging client.

    • name (str) – The name of the lgoger.

    • grace_period (Optional[float]) – The amount of time to wait for pending logs to be submitted when the process is shutting down.

    • batch_size (Optional[int]) – The maximum number of items to send at a time in the background thread.

    • max_latency (Optional[float]) – The amount of time to wait for new logs before sending a new batch. It is strongly recommended to keep this smaller than the grace_period. This means this is effectively the longest amount of time the background thread will hold onto log entries before sending them to the server.


Submit any pending log records.

send(record, message, **kwargs)

Overrides Transport.send().

  • Parameters

    • record (logging.LogRecord) – Python log record that the handler was called with.

    • message (str) – The message from the LogRecord after being formatted by the associated log formatters.

    • kwargs – Additional optional arguments for the logger
