Viewing deleted docker container history diagnostics

Netdata collects data about docker containers with cgroups pluigin, fine. But when container gets deleted, the history of container cannot be viewed anymore. E.g. in swarm or portainer based systems, containers get re-created in error conditions (e.g. memory exhausted). It is essential to know what happened in those containers before the error condition. E.g. if you view select portion of history where the container existed, netdata should show the data for it. Data has been collected when container was alive, but it is not displayed in graphs.
