How do I set the logging directory in Foxy?

I would like to configure the log directory to be elsewhere in my file.

I found what appears to be the function that I need to call, but how?

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete



I'm not too sure how good an example this is, but the test for this feature might be useful?

Thanks for the hint @KenYN!

import os
from datetime import datetime
import launch

starttime = datetime.utcnow()
log_dir = "/path/log/" + starttime.strftime("launch_%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S/")
launch.logging.launch_config.log_dir = log_dir

def generate_launch_description():
edit flag offensive delete link more



I tried this answer. It only puts the log from the launch file to the specified log folder. the log from the nodes still go to the default log folder. Is that your experience as well?
