The logging overview page for rospy ( ) mentions that as of Diamondback, logging is configured using a file in the fileConfig format.

Is there an example of how to set this up?

Also, do there exist handlers that publish to rosout, and can those be configured from the file as well?

You cannot configure rosout via the rospy logging format.

In the future, I hope to use a non-logging-module-based solution for rospy, as it is difficult to manipulate.

With this ticket resolved, we should be able to track rospy logs by rqt_logger_level (at least it did when I tried an year ago).

With rqt_logger_level, you can change the log level manually after node has started up. The configuration file is supposed to setup the log levels of rospy node on startup without the need to alter the node source code.
