How to log messages to the Debug Console?

I am using PhpStorm version 10.0.3 on Mac (El Capitan). I want to emit log messages to the Debug Console (and preserve them). How do I do that? Google could not get me any help and I could not find anything related to this in the help section either. 

Am I misinterpreting the usage/purpose of the Debug Console (apart from evaluating values during debug (which watches can do anyway))?

The console window is intended for PHP CLI debugging or JavaScript expressions evaluation. Basically, we have there the output of our PHP binary. If it is silent, we won't see anything as well.

Could you tell me, what kind of messages would you like to see in the console?
