A software has distinctive phases; design, development, testing, deployment and retirement. Logging helps developers, testers, maintainers, and managers to effectively acting, reacting, and interacting with the planned and unplanned events during a program execution. Software gets input from and puts output to its dynamically changing operating environments. Logging helps to record historical events to be used for error-correction, capacity planning, and general value added amendments to its functions. Many large software projects never see the light of day. They are often abandoned before completion being unable to meet the demand of ever changing operational environments in which these software's were meant to be deployed.
