The following functions configure the logging module. They are located in the
logging.config module. Their use is optional -- you can configure
the logging module using these functions or by making calls to the
main API (defined in logging itself) and defining handlers
which are declared either in logging or
Reads the logging configuration from a ConfigParser-format file named
fname. This function can be called several times from an application,
allowing an end user the ability to select from various pre-canned
configurations (if the developer provides a mechanism to present the
choices and load the chosen configuration). Defaults to be passed to
ConfigParser can be specified in the defaults argument.
Starts up a socket server on the specified port, and listens for new
configurations. If no port is specified, the module's default
DEFAULT_LOGGING_CONFIG_PORT is used. Logging configurations
will be sent as a file suitable for processing by fileConfig().
Returns a Thread instance on which you can call start()
to start the server, and which you can join() when appropriate.
To stop the server, call stopListening(). To send a configuration
to the socket, read in the configuration file and send it to the socket
as a string of bytes preceded by a four-byte length packed in binary using
Stops the listening server which was created with a call to
listen(). This is typically called before calling join()
on the return value from listen().
