Docker with syslog driver option loses logs when the destination is down #30979
Docker with syslog driver option does not retry to send logs when the destination is down.
Steps to reproduce the issue:
Describe the results you received:
There is a line in journactl indicating the problem :
But no retries after, even when the destination becomes available.
Describe the results you expected:
I think, as syslog-ng, logs should be saved and docker should retry later.
Additional information you deem important (e.g. issue happens only occasionally):
Additional environment details (AWS, VirtualBox, physical, etc.):
RHEL 7, Physical
Hi. Same issue, it's really annoying.
@tecnobrat : not quite the same issue. The one you mentionned is about launching a container when syslog endpoint is unavailable. In this case, the container starts properly but if by any chance the syslog endpoint becomes unavailable, you lose the messages (even in tcp).
