Shiny Server Application Logs to Standard Out

#1

I'm running Shiny Server inside a docker container on a Kubernetes cluster. The cluster uses a suite of logging and monitoring tools (including Sumo Logic and New Relic). However, I can't really utilize these tools because the logs that I care the most about, the application error logs, are written to a log file and not standard out, as the Server log is. Even ad hoc monitoring using docker log or kubectl log is impossible. Is it possible to route the application logs to standard out?


#2

I can't speak to how to do this with Shiny Server, but we will be looking to add support for Connect to spin up docker containers with the shiny application in them in the coming year. If that is of interest to you, let us know, we would love to see if what we are doing would address your needs.
