Query regarding Arbiter

Why arbiter has system-log file path mentioned though they are only used for vote?

Hi @Rohan_82787,

The systemLog.path parameter is the path of the log file to which mongod or mongos should send all diagnostic logging information.

Since an arbiter is also a mongod instance that is part of a replica set, although it does not hold data, we specify the log path in order to capture the logging information for this particular mongod process.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
