No OpenShift logs generated by a functional, running application

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • My running pod doesn't show any logs
  • oc logs <pod-name> and the OpenShift WebConsole don't show any logs on a running pod
  • Application is generating logs that I can see in some container folder, like /var/log/*, but nothing shows up when I run oc logs
