Docker Logging Driver

Managing Docker Container Logs with the Docker Logging Driver

Docker 1.6 introduced Logging Drivers. Using Logging Drivers, you can send stdout and stderr from a container to a variety of destinations, including:

  • The json-file format known from previous versions of Docker
  • syslog - either to a server over the network, or to the hosts's syslog daemon using unix sockets
  • Journald, Fluentd, AWS CloudWatch Logs and a variety of other destinations

Several of these methods can be used to ingest container logs into log management systems.

When selecting a log management system, make sure that it supports collection via the syslog and json-file drivers. You can then collect your machine data in one centralized location for easy troubleshooting and monitoring.
