Using Rsyslog Docker Containers¶
The rsyslog project provides a ready-to-run “syslog appliance” which provides all rsyslog features in an easy to use way. To run it, simply do
docker run -ti rsyslog/syslog_appliance_alpine
Up-to-date information on how to use this container can be found at the Alpine rsyslog appliance Docker Hub repo.
The docker containers are currently (early 2018) under development and must be used with some care.
The rsyslog project also provides a number of additional containers for different needs (end users, developers, package builders, …). A full overview of what is currently available can be found at the official rsyslog Docker Hub. Source code for the docker containers is kept in Github at rsyslog-docker project.
