+1 vote
70 views

I have a script-service running on a remote server, listening on a specific port. What i need here is to make this also maintain a log file of ALL incoming connections.

Could someone suggest to me a simple codefunction example to implement that on my main running service?

One approach could be simply to log the client socket's peername to a logfile, something like this:

import logging
log=logging.getLogger("connections")

...
if :
 clientsocket = ...
 log.debug("new connection from "+clientsocket.getpeername())

I have an application which sets up logging after parsing the args in the main() funktion. It needs to be setup after parsing the args because I can set the loglevel via commandline flags.

I have tried many variants on how to do that but every time with an weird result. What I want is logging in from all libs and really understand that doing this should be enough there:

from logging import getLogger

logger = getLogger(__name__)

But, I need to setup the logger in the main() function to log only to a file and not to console because my application has an own shell interface which should not be spammed with log messages - never a message should show up there.

I think it should be only some few lines of code but I can't figure that out. The logger should be configured to have a max file size and rotate logfiles. Can someone help me with this?

Is there a way to force Tomcat to set permissions on log files when they’re created? It seems as though this would be something defined in the logging.properties file, but it doesn’t seem like it’s an option.

I want the permissions of all log files created (on server startup/log rollover) to be 640. The only way I can think of doing this is either adding the command to the startup script, or by running a cron job every hour or so. However, if there is a way to make sure the log files are never more permissive than 640, that would be greatly preferable.

I have got a bash script that has two parts.
1. runs a script as a different user (using su -c )
2. when that part finishes, the script does a copy of the files created to another directory
I want to log the output of the entire script into one file. i.e.: internal script>external script> logfile
Whats the best way to do this?

My Apache server host few applications something like :

/var/www/A
/var/www/B

I would like to trace access for a specific application, eg. A. Is it possible?

Or should I use 'LogLevel info' and so log all applications into access.log file (then parsing for specific web page) ?

My config for logging is :

..
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log
LogLevel info
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined
..
