Laravel 5.5 – How to log all Eloquent Queries

In this post, I will show you a simple method to log each and every Eloquent Query your application executes. We gonna log queries to the storage/logs/laravel.log file.

To log database queries we gonna add a database lister as shown in the below example. Open your app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php and add the following code to boot() method:

namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use DB;
use Log;

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
    public function boot()

        DB::listen(function($query) {


Example log data

[2017-12-04 18:57:33] local.INFO: select * from `tasks`  
[2017-12-04 18:57:33] local.INFO: select count(*) as aggregate from `tasks`  
[2017-12-04 18:57:33] local.INFO: select * from `tasks` limit 15 offset 0
