Turning off logging in Selenium (from Python)


I’ve recently inherited some Selenium Webdriver code, written in Python 2.7. It is logging copious amounts of data to /tmp on Ubuntu – so much that it is becoming a problem. I am trying to turn it off (or at least down).

I have been running around trying to RTFM, but this is a new version of Selenium (2.19.0) and the manuals aren’t written yet!

I can see there is a method called set_browser_log_level(logLevel) which sounds promising, but to get to it, I need to instantiate a selenium.selenium.selenium object. I don’t otherwise have to instantiate one of these, and it takes a lot of parameters (which host? what port?) that I am not expecting to have to provide.

Clearly, I am misunderstanding something.

Can someone please explain either (a) how to turn off logging, or (b) what service is it that selenium.selenium.selenium.selenium.selenium (I may have got carried away there, sorry!) wants to talk to?

This is an older version of Selenium, and calling it from the scripting language, I believe.

Here’s what helped me to overcome the problem:

import logging
from selenium.webdriver.remote.remote_connection import LOGGER

Note: this code should be put before webdriver initialization.

Hope that helps.
