The Event Log tool window shows information about events that take place in IntelliJ IDEA.
Problems (errors and exceptions) are displayed in red. In such cases, clicking the more link (if present) opens a balloon with a more detailed description of the error or exception. Clicking a description link (depending on the error, the text may be different e.g. NullPointerException) opens the IDE Fatal Errors dialog, which lets you review the error and create a bug report.
Events related to databases are listed in a separate Database tab of the Event Log tool window. For more information, see Database tools and SQL.
