Recently I had to debug an app and noticed that in one case identical inputs gave different results, which was crazy as hell.

So I was thinking, is there a system out there that can parse sections of a log file and re-enact the requests? Possibly re-enact them over and over?
I'm not talking about integration tests, which are super handy but not exactly what I'm thinking of.

If your underlying db had changed backtracking would not result in the same environment ... kinda leads back to why two requests would result in different results.
