"my awesome sumologic "

What do you like best?

Before to this sumolog , I was having huge issue while searching my application log in different server . My application having 4 server and each server having no of logs . Some time , in case of any production issue , i have to find the issue and trace the log. Before sumolog , i have to login each server and find the log then individually i have to put the condition to refine the logs .But now, i am so comfortable and quickly able to add no of search parameter and sumo logic search all logs from all server environment at once . This is time saving , quick and less error prone . Good work sumo logic team .

"Easy log aggregation and dashboarding"

What do you like best?

SumoLogic makes setting up log aggregation easy and quick, with plenty of integration points and configurable agents. Reviewing logs from disparate and distributed systems using their query language is relatively simple, but can get complex fast. In a world of micro-services it is critical to be able to query logs from all running apps and their dependencies in order to monitor system health and debug issues. Whether it is through rSyslog or installed agents Sumo makes collecting logs from many systems a breeze.

What do you dislike?

The alerting management is not what I would expect from an enterprise product. We have many people logging in and creating alerts, and the only way to centralize them so they are manageable is to put them all on shared accounts. If they are created using individual accounts then they have to be migrated after a person leaves, which seems unnecessary. It is a blemish on an otherwise polished product

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a quick jump-start into logging, Sumo makes it very simple.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Holistic application awareness across the entire stack. Sumo has made it extremely easy to get logs from application, virtual hosts, databases, message systems and other critical infrastructure. It allows us to see correlating events and quickly deep dive during or after incidents.

What Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Logging tool"

What do you like best?

The UI and export options. It's very easy to navigate around. Searching around is very easy as well. Compared to other logging tools have used in the past, this is definitely the best. Reading the documentation to understand different syntax definitely helps, it will makes your life easier trust me.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything about it so far. The new beta UI, looks very nice as well, Can't wait for it to go GA. Splunk was another tool I use, but if I had to pick one between both, I'll definitely go with sumo logic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn how to export correctly, Also, read documentations of the tool, so you don't spend extra quality work time trying to figure out how to use the tool. My biggest challenge was exporting in CSV with the data I needed, once I figured this out, my life was easier from there. I'll definitely recommend spending time with the documentation before diving into the application.

Double check with your IT team to make sure you have access to the source category that you need, which is one of the issue I faced, not having proper access, once granted it was smooth sailing from there on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Logging issue, we want to retrieve logs of our application, especially when there's an error. Based on what we see, we can then know how to troubleshoot the error correctly. Different teams rely on this tool to be able to successfully perform their duty correctly, so far I can say it's working as expected.

"Sumo Logic to the rescue"

What do you like best?

Creating complex search queries is very easy. Parsing the results into a certain format, such as JSON is also very easy.

What do you dislike?

Speed. When querying something >30 days the search is really slow. I have, however, noticed drastic improvements in the speed in which searches complete so I am guessing Sumo Logic has made great strides in their search speed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have all of our production level logs funneled into Sumo Logic. It has made setting up alerts incredibly easy.

"When it comes to Sumo, the 80/20 rule applies"

What do you like best?

Sumo Logic is an IAAS search service - that's it's best feature. Anyone who has had to administrate an on-premise log analytics platform knows what a god send having a hosted solution is.

What do you dislike?

The Sumo Logic query language is sometimes difficult to use when trying to do more sophisticated searches. Multi-tenancy may lead to long search times when many other customers are using the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do analyze your search requirements. Sumo Logic handles most of the search analytics tasks for 80% of people. However, you need to enumerate your requirements to make sure you're not in the 20% of people. In that case, you'll probably need to go with the other "S" company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Centralized log analytics. Allows focusing engineering efforts on business differentiators rather than "utility" services like log analytics.

"Sumo Logic (Reliable and Powerful)"

What do you like best?

The ability to monitor logs from any system. Powerful query language, dashboards and alerting make this logging system a great choice for small to large companies. Centralized management of the collector agents allow easy updating of remote systems,

What do you dislike?

The query language has a pretty steep learning curve. The (collector) agents are pretty large in size and require an included Java run-time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Logging of applications, OS and S3 bucket logs all from a single interface.

Some work can be done to improve few sectors of User Interface such as reporting and after startup the log generation part.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Great log analysis tool"

What do you like best?

Very easy to search for pertinent logging to diagnose issues. So much easier than manually digging through log files.

What do you dislike?

Slow at times, especially during high load days of the week. This has seemed to improve recently, however, and I hope this trend continues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have the correct log level in your applications. Sumo is only as valuable as you make it!!! However it makes crawling logs SOOOO much easier than a straight up text search.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps us quickly scour log data to test and develop our applications

"Sumo Logic Makes Work A Breeze"

What do you like best?

Sumo is incredibly fast and responsive to even the biggest of search parameters. I'm typically multi-tasking and it keeps up with every request I send its way.

What do you dislike?

I would love to have more control over the pre-chosen time spans. Adding a custom time frame would make my work flow even smoother.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get set up with Sumo Logic today.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sumo allows me to support our customers by quickly diagnosing problems in API calls. It also helps see where our technology is consistently failing, which will lead to more focused changes and a better product.

Excellent features to monitor the logging data on various servers so that real time maintenance can be done.

"Sumo logic tracing"

What do you like best?

Sumo logic makes it easy to monitor logging across multiple nodes. The querying language is very useful for searching amongst said logs. In addition, there is an api that allows remote queries to return responses to a requesting script or query interface.

What do you dislike?

Cannot save the results of a search somewhere (even temporarily) to the site. It must be downloaded as a file.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should use sumologic for aggregate logging.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this for aggregate logging.
