Overall Satisfaction with Sumo Logic

We use Sumo Logic to centralize all of our application logs into one easy to use and easy to search interface. This is used not only for production but also our development environments. We use it for troubleshooting issues, development assistance, as well as for security and compliance. Having all of our logs in one place is fantastic.
  • Centralized management, everything can be done from the website.
  • Software upgrades of the collectors, once again all done from the website. Easy to identify out of date collectors
  • Searching and parsing logs. Very easy run a query logs and quantify the data.
  • Changing collectors from web config to local configs could be handled a bit better.
  • Less time logging onto systems and combining logs looking for issues resulting in faster diagnoses and resolution.
  • One less system to care and feed for. Hosted solution.
Provides the same basic solution as Splunk as it is a central log aggregator. The main difference for us is hosted or cloud vs. on-premise. The other large difference for us was the central management of the collectors. Sumo provides a single view of all the collectors, versions, and status.
If you have more than one server or application that you generate logs on, Sumo Logic makes the pain of collecting the data and searching it go away. Also with their live tail feature, you can view and parse logs in real time. Sumo Logic makes it easy to collect logs from file based, windows event logs, and network syslog sources.
