Syslog-ng is a log management application that enables you to collect logs from multiple platforms in a central space. Whether it's user activity, performance metrics, network traffic or any other log data, syslog-ng can collect and centralise log data.
Collecting logs can be especially important in a containerised environment, where you start and stop containers around the clock, and the container might not even exist anymore by the time you investigate an event.

1. Run your central log server in Docker.
2. Collect Docker infrastructure logs using syslog-ng.
3. Collect logs from containers using Docker volumes.
