Python agent v9.6.0

January 25, 2024Download


This release of the Python agent fixes a bug when specifying processors in structlog, and updates the NewRelicLogForwardingHandler to support dictionary type logs and formatters.

Install the agent using easy_install/pip/distribute via the Python Package Index or download it directly from the New Relic download site.

New features

  • Support dictionary type logs in NewRelicLogForwardingHandler

    • Dictionary type log messages are now supported in NewRelicLogForwardingHandler when passed as the log message, or when a custom formatter returns a dictionary.
    • The key message will be extracted if available and treated as the log message, and any other items will be considered context data attributes and prefixed with message..
      • These attributes are subject to the same filtering rules as other context data. The message. prefix is not considered when filtering attributes from logs.
      • To report these attributes, enable context data forwarding and optionally configure include and exclude rules to filter the allowed attributes.
  • Support logging formatters in NewRelicLogForwardingHandler

    • Logging formatters added with setFormatter() are now supported, and may return a string or dicitionary log message type to be forwarded to New Relic.

Bug fixes

  • Fix a bug when specifying processors in structlog
    • Previously, there was a bug in the structlog instrumentation where processors was assumed to be list type. Now the instrumentation supports processors of all iterable types.

Support statement

We recommend updating to the latest agent version as soon as it's available. If you can't upgrade to the latest version, update your agents to a version no more than 90 days old. Read more about keeping agents up to date.
