Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) allows you to readily deploy, manage, and scale container-based applications with Kubernetes on AWS.

Log Types  

  • Kubernetes API server component logs (api) – The cluster API server is the control plane component that exposes the Kubernetes API. 
  • Audit (audit) – Kubernetes audit logs provide a record of the individual users, administrators, or system components that have affected your cluster. 
  • Authenticator (authenticator) – Authenticator logs are unique to Amazon EKS. These logs represent the control plane component that Amazon EKS uses for Kubernetes Role Based Access Control (RBAC) authentication using IAM credentials.
  • Controller manager (controllerManager) – The controller manager manages the core control loops that are shipped with Kubernetes.
  • Scheduler (scheduler) – The scheduler component manages when and where to run pods in your cluster.

For more details about EKS logging, refer the Amazon documentation.
