EKS Logging Bestpractice



Can you suggest some best practise to centralised the logs from both EKS container & EKS pods to the CloudWatch?

Upon checking I have reference on Fluent, is there any other official documentation/paper on how integrate EKS with CloudWatch?

You can refer to this document page on running FluentD as Daemonset on EKS to send logs to cloudwatch logs, https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudWatch/latest/monitoring/Container-Insights-setup-logs.html.

for Quick Start Setup for Container Insights on Amazon EKS, https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudWatch/latest/monitoring/Container-Insights-setup-EKS-quickstart.html

And also, to help you customers get a hands on experience with using container insights on EKS would recommend this workshop, https://observability.workshop.aws/en/containerinsights/eks.html

let me know if you have more questions.
