First of all, you'd better explain, what you want.
firebird.log contains only errors, and debug kits need to be used
if server crashes.
No error or crash - no firebird.log or dump.

If you want to look what happens with the server right now -
query MON$ tables.
If you want to log (trace/audit) queries, etc - you need
to install Firebird 2.5, because 2.1 doesn't have this ability.
