+Full Query Logging
+Apache Cassandra 4.0 adds a new feature to support a means of logging all queries as they
were invoked (`CASSANDRA-13983
+<>`_). For correctness testing
it's useful to be able to capture production traffic so that it can be replayed against both
the old and new versions of Cassandra while comparing the results.
+Cassandra 4.0 includes an implementation of a full query logging (FQL) that uses chronicle-queue
to implement a rotating log of queries. Some of the features of FQL are:
+- Single thread asynchronously writes log entries to disk to reduce impact on query latency
+- Heap memory usage bounded by a weighted queue with configurable maximum weight sitting
in front of logging thread
+- If the weighted queue is full producers can be blocked or samples can be dropped
+- Disk utilization is bounded by deleting old log segments once a configurable size is reached
+- The on disk serialization uses a flexible schema binary format (chronicle-wire) making
it easy to skip unrecognized fields, add new ones, and omit old ones.
+- Can be enabled and configured via JMX, disabled, and reset (delete on disk data), logging
path is configurable via both JMX and YAML
+- Introduce new ``fqltool`` in ``/bin`` that currently implements Dump which can dump in
a readable format full query logs as well as follow active full query logs
 Review comment:
   Mentioned in next paragraph.
   "The audit logs also include CQL requests but full query logging is dedicated to CQL requests
only with features such as FQL Replay and FQL Compare that are not available in audit logging."
