I have error log files from each of the two system types where my stuff is running. They enumerate every little thing.

Memory allocation failure (not available from the server's memory pool)
SQL Timeout messages (normally, because some user wants everything from forever)
Actual coding errors.

The first is a combination of tweaking the server resources and accepting what the server jocks have allocated for that (what is considered 'critical') application webserver/php instance.
The second gets sent to our DBA - some are fixable, other require killing a user or two
These two are a battle between resources, performance vs stupid.

The last is the goody! It tells you about coding errors that may not show. At this point, were it not for the first two, the error logs would be almost always empty. It's a help with development, too.

The logs are built in, and the prophet, Yogi Berra revealed: "You can see a lot just by looking."
