Logging

To make the logging of events consistent, PyMAPDL has a specific logging architecture with global and local logging instances.

For these two types of loggers, the default log message format is:

>>> from ansys.mapdl.core import launch_mapdl
>>> mapdl = launch_mapdl()
>>> mapdl._log.info('This is an useful message')
  LEVEL - INSTANCE NAME - MODULE - FUNCTION - MESSAGE
  INFO - GRPC_127.0.0.1:50052 -  test - <module> - This is an useful message

The instance_name field depends on the name of the MAPDL instance, which might not be set yet when the log record is created (for example, during the initialization of the library). If an MAPDL instance is not yet created, this field might be empty.

Because both types of loggers are based in the Python module logging, you can use any of the tools provided in this module to extend or modify these loggers.
