Recently, a customer asked us:
Where are the logs for a Tungsten Cluster and which are the proper log files to monitor if I do a master role switch to another node?
The Answer: Part I
Both basic and advanced logs are available!
The basic logs are symbolic links into the log subdirectory for each layer of the cluster.
For example, this is the listing of the default log directory,
connector-user.log -> /opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-connector/log/connector-user.log
manager-user.log -> /opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-manager/log/manager-user.log
mysqldump.log -> /opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-replicator/log/mysqldump.log
replicator-user.log -> /opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-replicator/log/replicator-user.log
xtrabackup.log -> /opt/continuent/tungsten/tungsten-replicator/log/xtrabackup.log
As you can see, each log file is a symlink to the user-level log for each of the layers, along with logs for backups.
You may also cd into each of the “real” log directories and look at the following, more detailed logs:

and to a lesser degree the Connector log:
