Application logs pushing to a centralized location & analyzing the logs , troubleshoot using dashboards which solves our application related troubleshooting in a easier way.

Pros

FER Creation , dashboards are most impactful for us. Product is not very much esy to use (need some skills).
Integration with our business process are not easy , it takes some time..but once we understands about sumologic features
it gave us a major relief in application log analysis. One word excellent tool but if we know how to use it.

Cons

It's not user firendly, need some study before working.Especially the costing of frequent/infrequent/contimuous tier.
Integration is bit difficult , but our folks worked together to integrate sumologic for pur business needs.
The major drawback is it's support , currently there is no support number we need to send mail only & the support team
works in pacific timezone which is not suitable for indian time like us. For a support case it takes around 2 weeks to close.

I use Sumo Logic to ingest logs across a fleet of about 125 servers, including Windows and Linux servers. Setup was pretty straightforward. Documentation is detailed and complete. Customer support and tech support are mostly competent and cooperative. I'd definitely recommend this product, especially to smaller startups or businesses that can't or don't want to implement their own logging server infrastructure.

Pros

Extremely flexible search and reporting
Log ingestion from essentially any source
Good support for major operating systems
Decent technical support
Good communication with customers
Continuously improving the software in all areas
PCI/DSS qualified

Cons

Some very poor UI design decisions
Poor account management
Performance can be very bad for searches over large data sets or long timeframes
Expensive

Sumo Logic Review

An ideal solution for scaling up things when it comes to cloud operations and analytics.

An ideal solution for scaling up things when it comes to cloud operations and analytics.

Pros

Surest mean to effectively run diagnostics on your servers to root out any faults that may be causing unexpected hitches. With so much flexibility, you can get just anything. The search feature works pretty fast giving you reports whenever you need info.

It has a rather simplified interface that makes you just think of a mobile app. You can use the dashboard to manage logs of various applications. This lets you see areas where you need to make adjustments for improvement. In addition, you can analyze every log and mine all useful data.

It integrates seamlessly with cloud providers and you get the most done with AWS right by your side. Also, if you're stuck at any point, you can reach out to customer care and have your issue addressed in good time.

Cons

The live-mode feature should be made such that when you start the tool, you are automatically switched on because it's easy to forget to switch it on every time you're starting it. It would be such a good thing.

I have generated multiple Dashboards for real time analytics of cloud watch logs.
We were able to carve out business trends and it led us into process improvement.

Pros

Sumo logic is very flexible and easy to integrate with different cloud providers. But it's specifically easy to work with AWS.
I had to create an IAM user and provide the credentials to sumo logic collectors which started pulling in data from S3 buckets immediately.
Option to generate variety of Dashboards from real-time streaming data.

Cons

I didn't like the tabular interface. you have to scroll all the way to the right to find your tabs.
It could be have been made more user friendly.
