You can have Chainsaw process events generated in Python...there are two
commonly-used mechanisms:
 - Write an XMLSocketAppender that sends logging events to a socket,
conforming to logging events in log4j's dtd and configure Chainsaw to
use an XMLSocketReceiver

 - Write events to a log file and configure Chainsaw to use a
LogFilePatternReceiver (or VFSLogFilePatternReceiver if accessing log
files available over ssh)

There are other network-based options as well (UDP, multicast), but they
can lose events and require UDP/multicast in your network between the
Chainsaw and appender.

Subject: log4j for python and chainsaw possible?


I have a library that allows various components written in different
programming languages (perl, python, java) to talk to each other, and
like to capture the different log messages from each component and
them in a centralized GUI application.  I wonder if the following is

Each component logs its event messages using log4j and directs the
to a socket using the SocketAppender.  The idea is the I can then use
chainsaw to read the messages from the socket and display them in the
So far, I have no problem in getting Java to work with log4j and
and it seems to work for Perl as well (according its FAQ), but the
I have is Python.  I've founded very little information on this.

Does anyone have an suggestion?  Thanks!
