+Log Levels
+Monolog exposes 6 log levels. Although it is possible to add more by extending
+the classes you need, these are generally enough.
+- **DEBUG** (100): Detailed debug information.
+- **INFO** (200): Interesting events. Examples: User logs in, SQL logs.
+- **WARNING** (300): Exceptional occurrences that are not errors. Examples:
+ Use of deprecated APIs, poor use of an API, undesirable things that are not
+ necessarily wrong.
+- **ERROR** (400): Runtime errors that do not require immediate action but
+ should typically be logged and monitored.
+- **CRITICAL** (500): Critical conditions. Example: Application component
+ unavailable, unexpected exception.
+- **ALERT** (550): Action must be taken immediately. Example: Entire website
+ down, database unavailable, etc. This should trigger the SMS alerts and wake
+ you up.
