Runtime logs

What are runtime logs?

Runtime logs capture a wide range of information generated by your Node.js application during its execution. These logs provide insights into the real-time operations and performance of your application.

They include, but are not limited to:

  1. System events: Information about the starting, stopping, and restarting of your application.
  2. Application errors: Detailed error messages and stack traces that help diagnose issues within your application code.
  3. Custom log messages: Any custom logging implemented within your application to track specific actions or events.

Analyzing runtime logs helps you identify and resolve bugs or issues in the code, ensuring the application runs as expected.
