As teams moved their deployment infrastructure to containers, monitoring and logging methods changed a lot. Storing logs in containers or VMs just doesn’t make sense – they’re both way too ephemeral for that. This is where solutions like Kubernetes DaemonSet come in.

Since pods are ephemeral as well, managing Kubernetes logs is challenging. That’s why it makes sense to collect logs from every node and send them to some sort of central location outside the Kubernetes cluster for persistence and later analysis.
