From man valgrind:
valgrind [[valgrind] [options]] [your-program] [[your-program-options]]
Specifies that Valgrind should send all of its messages to the
specified file. In fact, the file name used is created by
concatenating the text filename, "." and the process ID, (ie.
<filename>.<pid>), so as to create a file per process. The
specified file name may not be the empty string.
Just like --log-file, but the suffix ".pid" is not added. If you
trace multiple processes with Valgrind when using this option
the log file may get all messed up.
So you could try:
valgrind --log-file-exactly=/tmp/mythbackend.valgrind.log [insert
normal mythbackend command line here]
