Where is the Docker daemon log? I'm looking for daemon log for troubleshooting communications between the client and container via proxy and not for docker container STDOUT.

It depends on your OS. Here are the few locations, with commands for few Operating Systems:

·         Ubuntu (old using upstart ) - /var/log/upstart/docker.log

·         Ubuntu (new using systemd ) - sudo journalctl -fu docker.service

·         Boot2Docker - /var/log/docker.log

·         Debian GNU/Linux - /var/log/daemon.log

·         CentOS - /var/log/daemon.log | grep docker

·         CoreOS - journalctl -u docker.service

·         Fedora - journalctl -u docker.service

·         Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server - /var/log/messages | grep docker

·         OpenSuSE - journalctl -u docker.service

·         OSX - ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker/Data/com.docker.driver.amd64-linux/log/d‌​ocker.log

Windows - Get-EventLog -LogName Application -Source Docker -After (Get-Date).AddMinutes(-5) | Sort-Object Time
