LogBox Manual - Version 7.x

LogBox is an enterprise ColdFusion (CFML) logging library designed to give you flexibility, simplicity, and power when logging or tracing is needed in your applications. LogBox is also part of the ColdBox Platform suite of services and libraries. It allows you to easily build upon it's logging framework to meet any logging or reporting needs your applications have. LogBox surpasses ColdFusion's very basic cflog tag. LogBox allows you to create multiple destinations for your loggings and even configure multiple destinations or change them at runtime.
Almost every application needs logging and/or tracing capabilities, and we have developed LogBox to satisfy these needs. Although you should not over-use logging as it can slow down an application, LogBox allows you to filter out or cancel logging noise.
LogBox is a standalone framework for ColdFusion (CFML) applications, and it is also bundled with the ColdBox Platform.
