Sumo Logic has really blown me away with what the product has to offer out of the box. We have like 6 servers and we used to monitor each of them separately by running scripts on each of them for the services they hosted. But since Sumo Logic has come into the picture, We have merged all our log stream on the cloud to Sumo logic and have customized scripts running to filter out any service which fails or times out due to any reason.
We have a dashboard setup and it keeps track of all the services which are running on the different servers like the number of hits the service got, the response time, service fails, etc. We have a team dedicated to reading the Sumo Logic’s machine data analytics work. It provides you with great value insights which can be very useful in real-time.
JSON field formatting is found to be very useful because many of the services are based on the REST platform these days. The ability to filter the logs based on timestamp, service name or a specific period of time is extremely useful because it saves us a lot of time by not having to go through all the logs from top to bottom.
The fact that it is cloud-based makes it the most viable solution available in the market because it means that it can be accessed from anywhere and everywhere at any time. You just need access to the internet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
