Logging in PynamoDB uses the standard Python logging facilities. PynamoDB is built on top of botocore which also uses standard Python logging facilities. Logging is quite verbose, so you may only wish to enable it for debugging purposes.

Here is an example showing how to enable logging for PynamoDB:

import logging
from pynamodb.models import Model
from pynamodb.attributes import (
    UnicodeAttribute, NumberAttribute

log = logging.getLogger("pynamodb")
log.propagate = True

class Thread(Model):
    class Meta:
        table_name = 'Thread'

    forum_name = UnicodeAttribute(hash_key=True)
    subject = UnicodeAttribute(range_key=True)
    views = NumberAttribute(default=0)

# Scan
for item in Thread.scan():
