In programming/computer science, refers to the effect of numerous exceptions being thrown in an application. The list of exceptions, often originating from one bug, makes it difficult to track down and forces programmers to scroll through a log of exceptions. Often the use of a logger will alleviate this problem.
Can also refer to a bloated log file of error messages.
It took twice as long to find the bug because our log file suffered from 'scrolling blindness'
