There’s no record that I can find of anything being wrong with the provisions of the USS Salt Lake City, but suppose there had been? In case of an outbreak of food poisoning, it could have been critical for the ship’s medical personnel to know which food items came from which suppliers. Software application logs are similar to this sort of routine deck log entry. For the most part, you’ll never need to refer back to the information in the log. But when something goes wrong, detailed logging can be incredibly useful. In this chapter, I’ll look at a variety of tools and techniques for keeping track of your application’s activity.
