I needed a simple tailon what I could patch.
This is based on ipedrazas/tailon
Tailon is here: https://github.com/gvalkov/tailon
First run a conatiner you want to capture the logs from. If your conatiner was not given a name, grab the name and pass it to the Tailon container.
You can also pass a host directory.
By default the deamon runs as nobody but you can pass another user id. Of course you can run as root by setting "--user=0" but that is a bad idea if you have a mounted host directory.
For an Ubuntu system running as a user that are part of the "adm" group.
The following command will expose /var/log on port 8084 on the local machine:
docker run -it -v /var/log:/data --user=1000 -p 8084:8080 sago007/docker_tailon
You can watch multiple volumes like this:
docker run -it -v /var/log:/data -v /etc:/data1 --user=1000 -p 8084:8080 sago007/docker_tailon /tailon/run.sh "/data1"
This exposes both /var/log and /etc
Be warned that these commands are designed for easy testing. On production you do not want to expose /var/log and /etc like that!
This version does not contain patches.
Versions are on the format:
- A is the major number for sago007/docker_tailon. This is only changed if I break backwards compability. Note that it can also be broken if Tailon breaks it!
- X.Y.Z is the Tailon version number.
- B is the minor update. It is increased for any smaller change or patch.
188.8.131.52.2 is the first major version. It is build on Tailon 0.5.1 and it is patched compared to 184.108.40.206.1.
