Customers have multiple options to access logs for monitoring and analysis purposes. One common approach is to configure the container orchestrator or container runtime environment to collect and aggregate logs from all containers. These logs can be centrally stored and accessed through a log management system or dashboard, providing a centralized view of the application's logs.

Another approach is to directly access logs from individual containers. This can be done using log streaming or file access mechanisms provided by the container runtime environment. By accessing logs at the container level, customers can monitor the application's behavior, troubleshoot issues, and gain insights into its performance and usage patterns.

Both methods offer flexibility in monitoring and analyzing logs. The choice of approach depends on the specific requirements and preferences of the customer, as well as the capabilities provided by the container runtime environment or orchestration platform.
