Logging extensions were specifically developed to solve the problems of users:

  • Collecting Kubernetes events to provide insight into what is happening inside a cluster, such as decisions made by the scheduler, or why some pods were evicted from the node.
  • Collect logs from the nodes like kubelet logs.
  • Collect logs from files on the nodes, for example, audit logs, or the systemd journal.

Starting with Logging operator version 3.17.0, logging-extensions are open source and part of Logging operator.
