GCP Monitoring and Log Management from Sumo Logic
Integrating directly with Google Stackdriver, Sumo Logic provides real-time observability for your GCP-generated log data. Sumo Logic is a modern analytics platform built for managing modern applications in the cloud. After your team has worked so hard to build the best digital experience for your users, why would you trust a service that isn’t built with the same exacting standards? It’s time for something better!
Sumo Logic offers a cloud-native suite of applications that integrate into your GCP environment and make it easy to get the value out of all of the logs coming the GCP platform.
- Google App Engine – This application provides deep insights into GCP as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) option. Understand incoming requests, platform activity, and get ahead of serious issues before they affect your users
- Google VPC – With this application you can see the intricate details of network traffic to, and within, your application on GCP. You see trends in network requests, locations, traffic size, and more – all with outlier detection to detect when there might be a problem.
- Google IAM – Since IAM controls access to your GCP environment, it is essential to understand user and policy activity within IAM. This application provides that visibility, and allows you to be confident that you won’t miss potential issues.
- Google Cloud Audit – This application provides real-time analysis of the audit stream from GCP detailing GCP user activity, administrative actions, and authentication activity.
Real-Time Monitoring and Troubleshooting for Applications on GCP
As the industry-leading SaaS platform for analyzing machine data, Sumo Logic makes it easy to collect, monitor, and analyze GCP app performance and operation logs across your applications and infrastructure. Sumo Logic’s application for the Google App Engine, combined with custom logs and metrics generated by your application, provides a complete picture of your application performance
Sumo Logic lets you continuously monitor Google App Engine data and stats like:
- Response codes over time
- Server and application errors by site
- Top Services by activity
- Response throughput
- Geographical location of requests
