Analyze Server Logs in Minutes, Not Hours
Sumo Logic is simple to set up and simple to use. The Sumo Logic Setup Wizard will guide you through the process, getting your logs in the right place in mere minutes. NGINX logs, which typically come as error.log or access.log files, can be uploaded for easy one-time analysis or streamed into the Sumo Logic platform on a regular basis.
With the Sumo Logic App for NGINX, you can say goodbye to:
- Checking log files on every host just to find out what web servers were involved.
- Using every command line from grep to awk to sort to uniq just to try to create a single data file to work with.
- Writing scripts in everything from perl to python to bash because someone needs data from the logs but doesn’t have access to the server to get it.
