Thanks for the quick replies. With a mongrel_cluster config file like this:

user: root
log_file: /path/to/app/log/dir/mongrel.log
port: "8000"
environment: production
group: apache
address: 127.0.0.1
servers: 8
...

I end up with these log files:

mongrel.8000.log
mongrel.8001.log
mongrel.8002.log
mongrel.8003.log
mongrel.8004.log
mongrel.8005.log
mongrel.8006.log
mongrel.8007.log

With, as has been stated, very little written to each, and the
application logging going to production.log.

It would be nice if I could keep things tidier and have just one mongrel.log

Thanks!
John
