Available since version2.0
Source Code https://github.com/yiisoft/yii2/blob/master/framework/log/Logger.php

Logger records logged messages in memory and sends them to different targets if $dispatcher is set.

A Logger instance can be accessed via Yii::getLogger(). You can call the method log() to record a single log message. For convenience, a set of shortcut methods are provided for logging messages of various severity levels via the Yii class:

For more details and usage information on Logger, see the guide article on logging.

When the application ends or $flushInterval is reached, Logger will call flush() to send logged messages to different log targets, such as file, email, or database, with the help of the $dispatcher.

ConstantValueDescriptionDefined By
LEVEL_ERROR 1 Error message level. An error message is one that indicates the abnormal termination of the application and may require developer's handling. yii\log\Logger

Property Details

$dbProfiling public read-only property

The first element indicates the number of SQL statements executed, and the second element the total time spent in SQL execution.

$dispatcher public property

The message dispatcher

$elapsedTime public read-only property

The total elapsed time in seconds for current request.

$flushInterval public property

How many messages should be logged before they are flushed from memory and sent to targets. Defaults to 1000, meaning the flush() method will be invoked once every 1000 messages logged. Set this property to be 0 if you don't want to flush messages until the application terminates. This property mainly affects how much memory will be taken by the logged messages. A smaller value means less memory, but will increase the execution time due to the overhead of flush().

public integer $flushInterval 1000
$messages public property

Logged messages. This property is managed by log() and flush(). Each log message is of the following structure:

[
  [0] => message (mixed, can be a string or some complex data, such as an exception object)
  [1] => level (integer)
  [2] => category (string)
  [3] => timestamp (float, obtained by microtime(true))
  [4] => traces (array, debug backtrace, contains the application code call stacks)
  [5] => memory usage in bytes (int, obtained by memory_get_usage()), available since version 2.0.11.
]
public array $messages = []
$profiling public read-only property

The profiling results. Each element is an array consisting of these elements: info, category, timestamp, trace, level, duration, memory, memoryDiff. The memory and memoryDiff values are available since version 2.0.11.

public array getProfiling ( $categories = [], $excludeCategories = [] )
$traceLevel public property

How much call stack information (file name and line number) should be logged for each message. If it is greater than 0, at most that number of call stacks will be logged. Note that only application call stacks are counted.

public integer $traceLevel 0

Method Details

calculateTimings() public method

Calculates the elapsed time for the given log messages.

public array calculateTimings ( $messages )
$messages array

The log messages obtained from profiling

return array

Timings. Each element is an array consisting of these elements: info, category, timestamp, trace, level, duration, memory, memoryDiff. The memory and memoryDiff values are available since version 2.0.11.

flush() public method

Flushes log messages from memory to targets.

public void flush ( $final false )
$final boolean

getDbProfiling() public method

Returns the statistical results of DB queries.

The results returned include the number of SQL statements executed and the total time spent.

return array

The first element indicates the number of SQL statements executed, and the second element the total time spent in SQL execution.

getElapsedTime() public method

Returns the total elapsed time since the start of the current request.

This method calculates the difference between now and the timestamp defined by constant YII_BEGIN_TIME which is evaluated at the beginning of yii\BaseYii class file.

public float getElapsedTime ( )
return float

The total elapsed time in seconds for current request.

getLevelName() public static method

Returns the text display of the specified level.

public static string getLevelName ( $level )
$level integer

The message level, e.g. LEVEL_ERROR, LEVEL_WARNING.

return string

The text display of the level

getProfiling() public method

Returns the profiling results.

By default, all profiling results will be returned. You may provide $categories and $excludeCategories as parameters to retrieve the results that you are interested in.

public array getProfiling ( $categories = [], $excludeCategories = [] )
$categories array

List of categories that you are interested in. You can use an asterisk at the end of a category to do a prefix match. For example, 'yii\db*' will match categories starting with 'yii\db\', such as 'yii\db\Connection'.

$excludeCategories array

List of categories that you want to exclude

return array

The profiling results. Each element is an array consisting of these elements: info, category, timestamp, trace, level, duration, memory, memoryDiff. The memory and memoryDiff values are available since version 2.0.11.

init() public method

Initializes the logger by registering flush() as a shutdown function.

public void init ( )
log() public method

Logs a message with the given type and category.

If $traceLevel is greater than 0, additional call stack information about the application code will be logged as well.

public void log ( $message, $level, $category 'application' )
$message string|array

The message to be logged. This can be a simple string or a more complex data structure that will be handled by a log target.

$level integer

The level of the message. This must be one of the following: Logger::LEVEL_ERROR, Logger::LEVEL_WARNING, Logger::LEVEL_INFO, Logger::LEVEL_TRACE, Logger::LEVEL_PROFILE_BEGIN, Logger::LEVEL_PROFILE_END.

$category string

The category of the message.
