I’m migrating a Python 2 App Engine Standard app to the new Python 3 Standard runtime, which is very different. One big difference is that you use Google Cloud APIs explicitly, including Stackdriver Logging. I’m using google-cloud-logging‘s App Engine Handler and configuring it to correlate logs with HTTP requests:
import google.cloud.logging logging_client = google.cloud.logging.Client() from google.cloud.logging.handlers import AppEngineHandler, setup_logging setup_logging(AppEngineHandler(logging_client, name='stdout'))
This works great!…except it hits a 256KB log entry limit and crashes somewhat regularly. Stack trace below. This happens in long-running background requests that do a fair amount of work, but when I count the total amount of logged text (including string timestamps) in requests that crash, it only averages 5-15KB or so, far smaller than 256KB. (Yes, the docs warn This approximate limit is based on internal data sizes, but it’s hard to believe that overhead is 15-50x.)
Any idea what I’m missing? Thank you in advance!
