Collecting application logfiles with Kubernetes

Attentive Co-Driver


At first glance, it might seem like overkill to provide each individual application container two additional containers that are solely responsible for log management, but even in classic setups, you have to configure the log services manually on the respective VMs. The work up front with custom sidecar images will certainly take a little more time than quickly setting up a log client on a VM. In the long run, however, administration will be simplified. For new applications, you only have to reference the existing sidecar and a matching configuration in the deployment, and these images can be maintained by different employees and updated independently of the application itself.
