Overall Satisfaction with Sumo Logic

Sumo logic is being used as a single source of log aggregation for multiple system types from Windows, Linux, Networking, Mainframe, etc. This allows cross OS/cross system searches for specific items. This allows our IT security team to research issues quickly. This also allows us to limit the amount of disk space used to store logs on internal systems. We can build custom reporting to track issues or changes that can be shared with teams and management without allowing direct access to the systems involved.
  • Custom reporting
  • Multiple platform access
  • Easy setup for consuming log data
  • Report engine takes work to create useable info
  • User interface needs improvement
  • Better training options
  • Helped us achieve better log aggregation for both PCI/SOX and non-compliance reasons
  • Allows disparate teams to investigate issues beyond their own source logs
  • Allows management and non-systems folks access to data without direct system access
For use this was a better overall solution for our needs. Between reporting, access and the ability to support an external two-factor solution for controlled access.
If you are looking for an internal only system then this may not work for you, but aside from that I cannot see where this would be less appropriate. This system is well suited to bring diverse system info together for cross platform research and auditing. It is really helpful where custom reporting is desired or required.
