Docker containers are stateless and the logs become unavailable as soon as the container shuts down.
Docker logging driver and data volumes make log containers dependent on host machines.
The multi-tier structure (Docker Container, Docker Service, Host OS) increases complexity. Simple log aggregators running on Docker host may not help you access the file system inside the container to collect logs.
