Node JS Agent :: Logs configuration

i have my Node JS Agent configured and it shows up in AppD Monitoring portal .
I am using [Node 7.10.1 - Alpine Linux with glibc] Docker environment on AWS clould
The problem is, i cannot see the logs in host environment under /tmp/ as configured below /tmp/appd
using 4.3.4 npm module 
Is there any issue below logging configuration?
In the docs(link below content at end) , it says debug mode would show logs in stdout (does that mean logging file won't get created in debug mode)
controllerHostName: '.....,
controllerPort: 443,
controllerSslEnabled: true, // Set to true if controllerPort is SSL
accountName: ....,
accountAccessKey: ....,
applicationName: ....
tierName: ....
nodeName: domain name ,
debug: true,
logging: {
'logfiles': [{
'root_directory': '/tmp/appd',
'filename': 'echo_%N.log',
'level': 'DEBUG',
'max_size': 10000,
'max_files': 10

Hi Shiva, 


When you start the Node.JS application in debug mode, the log location is logged out in the console. You can get it from there.


It should be /tmp/appd for any linux machines.
