When you want to read the files you call

###
oc rsh <POD>
cat /var/log/nginx/error.log
###

or something similar, right.

Would it not be nicer to get it via

oc logs -f <ACCESS_LOGGING_POD>
oc logs -f <ERROR_LOGGING_POD>

I think for POC (Prove of concept) the local logs setup woks but when
you want more production readiness you should consider to log to a
syslog server. IMHO.

Maybe you can reuse the aggregating logs setup from openshift.

https://docs.openshift.org/latest/install_config/aggregate_logging.html

with

http://docs.fluentd.org/articles/in_syslog

or something similar.

Cheers Aleks
