8.1. Logging and error handling in SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 contains numerous features to enable you to troubleshoot your applications while developing or running in production. All requests to SharePoint are given a unique id, which can be used to trace a specific error message to a request. This number is called the correlation id. Depending on how you’ve configured SharePoint errors, warnings and information messages are logged to the SharePoint-specific trace logs and databases, or to the Windows Event Log. All of these log entries contain a correlation id, which allows you to combine logs from different sources to get a bigger picture of a specific error or warning.

The correlation id is new in SharePoint 2010. This unique value is shown on the default error page. The default error page never shows the exact error that the end users saw, but users can send the correlation id to the support team for further investigation. Any custom logging to the log files will also contain this specific id.
