Good log aggregation, reliable technical support and offers lots of features

What is our primary use case?

We mainly use the solution to take advantage of the debugging logs and application logs, which are the production systems that we have. All of these are running these Sumo Logic agents. They keep communicating with the logs and are pushing to the Sumo Logic servers. Basically, we use it for our application debugging. We also push the balance of our logs to Sumo Logic. That is for our workarounds. It helps us to get to know the health of our application from the load balancer point of view. We pull for certain error messages within the logs, let's say, for example, exceptions, or errors, etc… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is quite stable."
  • "If you look at some of the other offerings right now that are available in the market, they do offer APM as well as the product they're offering. I believe Sumo Logic is not there yet. So that's something which I would love to see."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. It's a good tool. It has helped us, and there's a whole lot of features included. For new businesses considering using the solution, if you are strictly or directly only looking towards the cost then it might not be justified, because stability is something which can't be measured, or rather it's not exactly tangible. You might say that, okay, one hour of downtime results in so much of a loss in the business, and if you're effectively making use of the tool for bringing up the systems really fast, potential damage will be zero. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. To…

Assists with data-driven decisions to reduce the time needed to investigate security and operational issues

What is our primary use case?

We've got it integrated into all of our production assets and our IT assets, like Okta and all the SaaS stuff that we need to manage our IT environment. It's plugged into pretty much everything. Primarily, we use it for security alerting. We plug it into Amazon and it lets us know when people log into different accounts, change privileges, log into production, etc. We also have it integrated on the IT side too — we have it integrated into our SSO provider. We want to know if someone logs in too many times or how frequently they try to log in, whether they get locked out or not. It generates… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Sumo Logic is an easy solution to use. You can set it up very quickly, and it includes a lot of training videos."
  • "Sumo Logic needs to make sure integrating solutions are seamless."

What other advice do I have?

Sumo Logic is an easy solution to use. You can set it up very quickly, and it includes a lot of training videos. It's just an all-around, easy solution to use. I would be shocked if it doesn't meet your needs. They just need to keep the pricing model right and ensure that the integrations are seamless. Sumo Logic needs to make sure integrating solutions are seamless. As a startup, we're looking to scale our team with tools that are really easy to use, that scale as well — tools like Sumo Logic, where one person can manage a ton. We probably have 20,000 assets in the cloud, and probably 60…
