Rusty, hopefully a little help inline:

Two ways:
1. Start traffic_server with:
sudo /usr/local/bin/traffic_server -T ".*"
-T gives you a regexp "tag" for which to see debug messages. .* will
be very verbose (probably too verbose). What you probably want is
something like "http.*" which will show you what the http state
machine is doing with the request. Other useful tags are url_rewrite,
cache.*, dns.* and many more. You can connect them with "http.*|dns.*"
to see all things http & dns related.

2. Set the relevant debug tags in records.config for
CONFIG proxy.config.diags.debug.enabled INT 0 <---- enable is 1
CONFIG proxy.config.diags.debug.tags STRING http.*|dns.* <--- what do
you want to log?

Note: debug tags slow things down a lot!
