E1205 logging-too-many-args


'Too many arguments for logging format string'


Used when a logging format string is given too many arguments.


In the following example, the format string given for debug only has one variable, but the call is given two additional arguments.

import logging
a = 1
b = 2
logging.debug("State: %d", a, b)
4:0: E1205: Too many arguments for logging format string

This will cause an exception, but only when the lazy formatting of the log message is executed (ie. if the log level is set so that the message will be emitted).
