- atomica.utils.start_logging(fname, reset=False)[source]¶
Log Atomica output to a file
This function automatically starts the file with a version record.
The file logger will potentially handle any log level, from 0 upwards. Therefore both stdout and stderr can potentially be logged. The stdout messages will be gated by the log level of at.logger. In practice, this means that the log file generated here will replicate whatever is being printed to the screen by the main Atomica process.
- The key items that will NOT be captured in this file log are
Output generated by a print statement. Instead of using print, use at.logger.info(‘message’) which will both print and log the output
Output generated by worker processes e.g. if using run_sampled_sims(parallel=True) This is because the workers can’t all write to the same log file without overwriting each other. Normal log output is typically suppressed anyway - however, stderr messages from the workers will be printed to the console but not logged in the file. These messages would typically corrupt the progress bar in the console anyway.
