I created a Spatial ETL ToolBox in ArcCatalog. When I run the tool from ArcCatalog I see log massages. But when I run this tool from a python script, the logs do not print to the python console.

import arcpy

How to print log from FME when running from python script?


1 Answer 1


not familiar with FME - but a search turned up some code that basically said

# echo log file to stdout
logFile = open(logFilename, 'r')
for line in logFile.readlines():
    print line

from here. So what @mapperz may be alluding to is creating a log file - then grabbing the output and writing to the console.

  • This print log when FME process end. I would like to display log immediately.

  • Not certain - you could try the method at this page that says 'To configure FME Workbench to generate a (.log) file each time you run a translation, click Tools > FME Options, click Runtime on the navigation menu, then check the Save log to file check box.' Commented Nov 2, 2014 at 9:37
