Debug logs

If required, arista.cvp collection supports debug log to get more information about process execution and save all these information in a log file.

Only for advanced users and support requests.

$ vim activate-arista-cvp-log.sh

#!/bin/sh

if [[ ! -z ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_FILE ]]; then
    export ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_FILE=arista.cvp.debug.log
fi
if [[ ! -z ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_LEVEL ]]; then
    export ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_LEVEL=debug
fi
if [[ ! -z ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_APICALL ]]; then
    export ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_APICALL=warning
fi

echo "Configure module for logging:"
echo "  - Logging Level: ${ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_LEVEL}"
echo "  - Logging File: ${ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_FILE}"
echo "  - URL Lib logging: ${ANSIBLE_CVP_LOG_APICALL}"

Then, when you want to activate log, run this command:

$ source activate-arista-cvp-log.sh
