Stackdriver is the default logging solution for clusters deployed on GKE. Stackdriver logging is deployed to a new cluster by default, explicitly set to opt-out. Stackdriver logging collects only the container’s standard output and standard error streams. To ingest logs, Stackdriver logging agent must be deployed to each node in the cluster. Stackdriver provides a single-pane-of-glass view of metrics, logs, and traces through Kubernetes Engine clusters and workloads.
We recommend you use Stackdriver logging as a unified data logging solution for GKE workloads unless additional observability tooling is already in place.
