Logging in Telemetry

The Telemetry service has similar log settings as the other OpenStack services. Multiple options are available to change the target of logging, the format of the log entries and the log levels.

The log settings can be changed in ceilometer.conf. The list of configuration options are listed in the logging configuration options table in the Telemetry section in the OpenStack Configuration Reference.

By default stderr is used as standard output for the log messages. It can be changed to either a log file or syslog. The debug and verbose options are also set to false in the default settings, the default log levels of the corresponding modules can be found in the table referred above.
