Two major use cases are:

1. Gathering usage statistics for reporting.
2. Creation of audit trail for debugging or security analysis.

This variety of logging produces data which is not only useful to end
users for trend tracking and stats, but also very useful to
administrators who need to know how their servers are being utilized (or
abused).
