Docker process killed with cryptic `Killed` message

Running a python script in a docker container and everything seems to be running smoothly, seeing some STDOUT messages, about 5 minutes in I get a Killed message with no further explanation and the process stops. Querying a db so could be a disk space issue, could be OOM issue. I’m not sure but I have no idea where to find logs about this kill message so I can get to the root of this problem. Any ideas where these logs are?

    With Docker for Mac, you can get into the host VM namespace with:

    docker run --net=host --ipc=host --uts=host --pid=host -it --security-opt=seccomp=unconfined --privileged --rm -v /:/host alpine /bin/sh

    Then run chroot /host to change root to the host mount. Now, you can use utilities like dmesg to check for any OOM message (like the comments to your question suggest).

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
