Description

ForwardToSyslog=yes is default in man distros.

Which means, we have a chain here:

container's stdout -> systemd service -> journald -> really huge syslog

Which means every log message of every container ends up in /var/log/syslog or something similar.

The Problem is explained here: https://github.com/DataDog/datadog-agent/issues/1606#issuecomment-382384062

Q: is this still the case?

Is there any other way to disable ForwardToSyslog for our services? If we could find a way to disable this behavior for our
containers, we should be fine.
