The DatagramHandler class, located in the logging.handlers module, inherits from SocketHandler to support sending logging messages over UDP sockets.

class DatagramHandler( host, port)
Returns a new instance of the DatagramHandler class intended to communicate with a remote machine whose address is given by host and port.

emit( )
Pickles the record's attribute dictionary and writes it to the socket in binary format. If there is an error with the socket, silently drops the packet. To unpickle the record at the receiving end into a LogRecord, use the makeLogRecord() function.

makeSocket( )
The factory method of SocketHandler is here overridden to create a UDP socket (socket.SOCK_DGRAM).

send( s)
Send a pickled string to a socket.
