This is such an insanely huge topic of discussion.

Here's what we do:
  • Every exception thrown in our code gets logged
  • When we fix a bug that's due to odd input or conditions we generally log the odd condition up to the point where it's common enough we feel we have a handle on it's many guises
  • When there's a spot where the code simply cannot, ever, in a million years be reached, and it's reached, we log it.
  • When there are failures of external services we might log them in order to work out what conditions will cause it to fail so we can work on preemptively not causing those conditions
  • When conditions in our app become extreme (eg serious user load, serious queue back-ups etc) we log them
Some of these logs are for debugging, some for planning, some of these logs are used to trigger alerts, and some for our own amusement.
cheers
Chris Maunder
