Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Amazon Managed Service for Apache Flink was previously known as Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics for Apache Flink.

Monitoring your Python Managed Service for Apache Flink application

You use your application's CloudWatch log to monitor your Managed Service for Apache Flink Python application.

Managed Service for Apache Flink logs the following messages for Python applications:

  • Messages written to the console using print() in the application's main method.

  • Messages sent in user-defined functions using the logging package. The following code example demonstrates writing to the application log from a user-defined function:

    import logging @udf(input_types=[DataTypes.BIGINT()], result_type=DataTypes.BIGINT()) def doNothingUdf(i):"Got {} in the doNothingUdf".format(str(i))) return i
  • Error messages thrown by the application.

    If the application throws an exception in the main function, it will appear in your application's logs.

    The following example demonstrates a log entry for an exception thrown from Python code:

Due to performance issues, we recommend that you only use custom log messages during application development.

Querying logs with CloudWatch Insights

The following CloudWatch Insights query searches for logs created by the Python entrypoint while executing the main function of your application:

fields @timestamp, message | sort @timestamp asc | filter logger like /PythonDriver/ | limit 1000
