The Combat Log is a log of combat actions and results, but may also show the results of the profession activities of nearby characters.

By default, it is accessible via a Combat Log tab on the General chat window.

Combat Logs may be written to a file using the /combatlog command. The resulting file may be found at Logs\WoWCombatLog.txt. The complexity of the combat logs content since the patch 2.4 changes means that logs are best used when analyzed by one of the available parsers which analyze combat logs to generate raid statistics.

The first such parser of wide popularity was Wow Web Stats. Other emergent parsers include Dejawow, WowMeterOnline and World of Logs, all of which demonstrate compatibility with logs from patch 2.4 and beyond.

World of Logs and WowCardioRaid are currently the only parsers offering real time combat log analysis.

Details of the changes made to the combat log in patch 2.4 can be found in the documentation for COMBAT_LOG_EVENT.
