Logging overview

idmtools includes built-in logging, which is configured in the [LOGGING] section of the idmtools.ini file, and includes the following parameters: level, console, and filename. Default settings are shown in the following example:

level = INFO
console = off
filename = idmtools.log

Logging verbosity is controlled by configuring the parameter, level, with one of the below listed options. They are in descending order, where the lower the item in the list, the more verbose logging is included.


Console logging is enabled by configuring the parameter, console, to “on”. The filename parameter can be configured to something other than the default filename, “idmtools.log”.

See Enabling/Disabling/Changing Log Level at Runtime for an example on enabling logging/changing levels at runtime.
