Network Log

The Network Infrastructure Log Data Challenge

Network infrastructure logs contain valuable information about your network, including usage, performance, utilization, and more. Additionally, network infrastructure logs contain critical information required to troubleshoot and optimize your network, including finding root cause of failures, diagnosing operational issues, and identifying performance bottlenecks. Given the value of the information stored in network infrastructure logs, both IT and business professionals are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of extracting the right insight from their network infrastructure log data. However, while extracting insight from network infrastructure log data has never been more crucial, it has also never been more difficult. Today’s current on-premise solutions come with enormous operational cost, complexity, and scalability problems. Consequently, network infrastructure log data is often never collected, or collected but never analyzed.

Below is a quick snapshot of what customers can do in Sumo Logic with network infrastructure logs:
  • Collect and Centralize Your Network Infrastructure Logs: Effortlessly collect and centralize network infrastructure logs. Collect logs from your entire network infrastructure, including logs from routers, switches, proxies, firewalls, IDS/IPS, VPNs, and any other network devices.
  • Troubleshoot Your Network Infrastructure: Find root causes of network failures, performance degradations, and increases in latency. Correlate network information with other tiers such as application, operating system, and virtualization events as well as analyze all security-relevant data in real time to respond to incidents faster.
  • Monitor Your Network Infrastructure: Proactively measure and monitor important network infrastructure statistics. Trigger alerts based on logs, flows, configurations, traps, and other metrics. Report on network usage and bottlenecks.
