Application Log Details?

Jan 3, 2012 8:15 AM

So I have not had the need to get into the log files much - but I did notice that in researching an issue in CF8 thae log files have much less data than in previous versions?



  1. Exact Time
  2. Browser Information
  3. HTTP Referrer
  4. Remote Address
  5. Query String



This is what I used to get:


08:26:47",,", Mozilla/5.0 (compatible), unknown exception condition 





Date/Time: 12/23/11 08:26:47
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible)
Remote Address:
HTTP Referrer: /shop25/catalog-listAdv.cfm?ViewProductList=View+Product+List
Query String: ViewProductList=View+Product+List


Dows anybody know how to make the CF8 logs more robust?

    I've never depended on default CF logs exept in dire emergencies when CF crashes. Instead, use CFLog to log whatever info you require, including this missing information (browser, remote address, etc. - date&time are logged automatically but you can log this as well). I wrote my own logging.cfc and log all sorts of stuff -- basically anything and everything that might need diagnosing or debugging.
