rsyslog and containers

In this chapter, we describe how rsyslog can be used together with containers.

All versions of rsyslog work well in containers. Versions beginning with 8.32.0 have also been made explicitly container-aware and provide some extra features that are useful inside containers.

Note: the sources for docker containers created by the rsyslog project can be found at - these may be useful as a starting point for similar efforts. Feedback, bug reports and pull requests are also appreciated for this project.
