Customizing Stackdriver Logs for Container Engine with Fluentd

Many Google Cloud Platform (GCP) users are now migrating production workloads to Container Engine, our managed Kubernetes environment.  Container Engine supports Stackdriver logging on GCP by default, which uses Fluentd under the hood to send your logs to Stackdriver. 

You may also want to fully customize your Container Engine cluster’s Stackdriver logs with additional logging filters. If that describes you, check out this tutorial where you’ll learn how you can configure Fluentd in Container Engine to apply additional logging filters prior to sending your logs to Stackdriver.
