Docker Logging Driver

Since docker 1.6.0 it allows setting a log adapter. This is very useful for production setups to send logs to a log aggregator such as logstash/fluentd. It would be amazing if rancher and rancher-compose would support these.

The according PRs to docker-compose for the docker-compose.yml reference:

You’re in luck, we already do! Rancher Labs has contributed a bunch to the log driver (syslog in 1.6 and rollover in 1.8) so we added support for those before docker-compose did. I don’t think there is support in the UI, but rancher-compose should already work with it. Please let me know if it doesn’t work.

Awesome! Now I just need to wait for the 4th of August to come so I can use the fluentd log driver :smile:
