12.8 Utility Functions

The plpy module also provides the functions plpy.debug(msg), plpy.log(msg), plpy.info(msg), plpy.notice(msg), plpy.warning(msg), plpy.error(msg), and plpy.fatal(msg). plpy.error and plpy.fatal actually raise a Python exception which, if uncaught, propagates out to the calling query, causing the current transaction or subtransaction to be aborted. raise plpy.ERROR(msg) and raise plpy.FATAL(msg) are equivalent to calling plpy.error and plpy.fatal, respectively. The other functions only generate messages of different priority levels. Whether messages of a particular priority are reported to the client, written to the server log, or both is controlled by the log_min_messages and client_min_messages configuration variables. See Volume 3: Server Configuration for more information.
