Welcome to another episode of Container of the Week! This time we are going to look at a utility container that assists you in debugging container operation or just helping to understand what’s going on.
Sometimes testing out a new container or troubleshooting is a simple matter of using “docker logs“. Unfortunately some containers do not log very much to standard output but instead use syslog. The factorish/syslog container can be used to start a simple syslog container in a few seconds to aid troubleshooting a container setup.
