Container Logging: How to manage container logs and build an ELK service using Docker and RancherContainer logging is a common challenge for container deployments. Logging with containers is a bit different than traditional logging, because the logs for each container are nested within the container. On September 16th, we hosted an online meetup discussing all aspects of container logging, and demonstrating how to build a scalable logging service for Docker and Rancher that uses Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana (ELK), along with Logspout.
In the meetup Rancher DevOps lead Bill Maxwell discussed: • Docker Logging Challenges • Options for gathering logs from containers • System and Application logging requirements • Deploying an ELK stack using Docker Compose with Rancher • Scaling and managing a production ELK deployment
You can view a recording of the meetup below. Bill also recently posted a blog about how he built our ELK stack here at Rancher Labs.
