Under what circumstance does docker make my life easier?
Straights of Schallsea
If you had a bunch of VMs?
What do you mean? If I want less good separation between my hosts?
Ha ha, yes, definitely. I was more thinking of "I need to rent a bigger server because I have too many VMs running node.js projects".
But what if you just rented more smaller VMs?!


But then you have to manage networking in a less straightforward manner than with Docker probably? What if you have 10 VMs? 100 VMs? 1000 VMs?
Like - I understand TCP/IP and I understand unix sockets. I don't understand weird networking layers and function calls. TCP/IP are pretty good standards!

If you have 1000 VMs you want to make sure each has a job, and knows its inputs and outputs, and you can make a swarm of them.
There you have it: Docker abstracts TCP/IP and Unix sockets and make DevOps accessible to app developers. If you already are a sysadmin there's no benefit to you.
Abstracts them to what?! I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THEIR SHIT *WORK*. This would be so much easier with a functional well documented and battle tested tool!
Abstracts them to fewer configuration files? A repository of pre-made images?
But didn't you already do that with VM appliances, templates, and your configuration/orchestration tool?
Sorry - this is me honestly trying to figure out Docker's use case - I am not fighting because I hate it - I am fighting because this is what I often hear and it's what I can't figure out.
That's okay, I'm not taking it personally.
I would never touch that stuff with a ten-foot pole, on the other hand Docker looks alluring to me for its simplicity. Maybe I'm mistaken but this would probably have contributed to its widespread adoption.
How do I say "make these logs all go to the host" - I can send them to EXTERNAL syslog, but not LOCAL central logging
It's super weird and I don't get it
I’m sorry I can’t help you with specific usage issues. 😕
My larger point is it introduces domain specific as opposed to generalized complexity
I’m sorry I don’t understand what this sentence means.
I want my complexity to be related to transferable skills. So if docker just said "You can expose a syslog daemon here" I could just use my knowledge of syslog and be done. Instead I need to figure out how to force a daemon to send its logs to pid 1's stdout, and then use a syslog tool to send that to syslog.

In general - if I need to communicate via a standard protocol, good. If need to communicate via an OS feature, that's ok. If I need to communicate via an external tool, that's questionable. If I need to communicate via some weird bullshit inside that app, that's intolerable.
Could it be because you're trying to coerce Docker into replicating your existing architecture? That Docker wasn't meant to send logs this way so you obviously have to do some contortions?
When I search "send logs to central repo on host docker" as a good string - this IS the way people are doing it. It looks like people are either not caching logs on non-volatile local storage, or doing a dumb hack.

And seemingly this is just the expected workflow - which terrifies my security brain.
Then Docker wasn't meant to do that and it's a blind spot of the framework, like all frameworks have. I'm sorry you had to run into it though.
That's my point! When does docker have a benefit is legit my question. I know it has limitations - but I am trying to find its strengths.

In #Fate core I am building a game where all stunts are tied to aspects, and more aspects gives you more stunts. Should multi-session consequences give you more stunts? It feels cool - but also more work?

Basically - stunts are supposed to be tools*to allow you to reaffirm your essential self in this contexts, and making your Broken Arm part of that feels cool.
