Docker + Fluentd adopted by Google & Kubernetes
We recently started seeing more people adopting Docker + Fluentd. For example. Google's Kubernetes adopted Fluentd as a default log collector. But Kubernetes uses Fluentd's 'tail' input plugin for log files. It's not performant, reliable, and config files become relatively messy...
Docker + Fluentd by Digital Ocean
Digital Ocean wrote a documentation about how to centralize Docker logs into one place, using Fluentd. But as I mentioned above, it tails log files as well.
Push logs directly from Docker to Fluentd (Code is available)
We'd like to have a way to directly push the logs from Docker to Fluentd, which is more performant, reliable, and simple. Just in case, @tagomoris already wrote a code so that you can review.
Logging is the essential part of the immutable infrastructure, so hope Docker has a flexible way to centralized logs using the solution like Fluentd.
