Judging by the log content, the leader transfer failed :thinking:. This should not affect the normal use of the database, right?

In version 6.5.0, I found posts with the same error and I’m not sure if there is an issue.

The original poster should first verify if the TiFlash columnar replica is functioning properly and if there are any access issues.
