Automatically. In mirroring the log records are sent across continually.

I mean in logshipping there is folder where log files backups are stored but i donot see in any folder in which mirror log files are stored.

Second how this log are sent i mean using sql agent or through any other way

Where ever you choose to put the log backups that you take. Mirroring doesn't use log backups, so where they go is irrelevant. I imagine you'll put them with the rest of your backups

Second how this log are sent i mean using sql agent or through any other way


They're sent automatically across the mirroring end points that you set up when you configured mirroring.

May I suggest google and look for a good article on the basics of mirroring?
