Microservices Observability

All the tools you need for observability, in one place

Modern, cross-functional site reliability and platform teams can’t afford to miss anything when solving a problem. The complexity of microservices-based applications has meant that DevOps and software development have been forced to make compromises by splitting visibility across tools, settling for insecure platforms, or leaving data out entirely because of the licensing costs of analytics. No longer! Sumo Logic’s Microservices Observability solution provide coverage across for all of your data - performance metrics, logs and events, and distributed transaction tracing - on a highly scalable, secure, cost-effective analytics platform.

Microservices Observability

Real-time application monitoring is the lifeblood of modern business

“When you’re running a modern app-based start-up, real-time is the lifeblood of the business. Every day we are thinking about scale and do we have the right tools in place to speed the delivery of features and mature our model. We are all in on observability and Sumo Logic is providing the real-time insights and intelligence across our business to operate like a bank and protect our customer data.”

Integrated Microservices Observability

Microservices monitoring across logs, metrics, events, and traces

Customers can be lost in seconds, and brands are destroyed within hours. That means that customer-impacting issues need to not only be detected in real-time time - engineers also need all available data - and the tools to understand it - in order to ask the right questions and uncover the unknown unknowns.

Sumo Logic’s integrated analytics platform seamlessly correlates system issues measured by performance monitoring, the deep visibility provided by logging, user experience monitoring provided by tracing and transaction analytics, and security visibility with integrated security analytics. That same platform also provides the sophisticated analytics that engineers need to uncover and solve the most complicated issues quickly.

Super-charged troubleshooting and monitoring of microservices

Find, and resolve, issues faster with monitoring tools designed by engineers like you

Modern applications rarely fail in predictable ways, and it is impossible to prepare for all eventualities. In order to resolve issues quickly, engineers need to be able to pinpoint problem areas, drilldown, and explore the data with minimal restrictions. Modern observability tools have to empower engineers to leverage their expertise and find the unknown unknowns.

Sumo Logic has to solve these same problems while managing a world-wide, cloud-native service for thousands of customers. The Sumo Logic Microservices Observability Suite is built on the experience of managing real-time operations for a decade. This includes not only coverage for the data needed, but also the ability to make the best connections and highlight problems with tools like the Root Cause Explorer and LogReduce.

Distributed Transaction Tracing for Microservices

Understand latency and user performance issues with support for OpenTelemetry

In order to connect microservice performance issues and errors with user experience, it is essential to understand end-to-end user transactions and uncover latency issues. Distributed Transaction tracing provides the telemetry to connect the monitoring of key performance indicators to the real experience of your users.

Sumo Logic Tracing (currently in closed beta) enables teams to monitor and troubleshoot transaction execution and performance across a distributed application environment. Tracing data is fully integrated with logs, metrics, and metadata in order to provide a seamless end-to-end experience during the process of managing and responding to production incidents, and to reduce downtime by streamlining root cause analysis. Sumo Logic Tracing supports the OpenTelemetry standard and leverages open source componentry from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to collect distributed tracing data

Flexible, modern licensing

Licensing models should enable your team, not restrict them

Your team should never feel obligated to make architectural choices or change your telemetry in order to satisfy the arbitrary restrictions of your vendor’s licensing model. Machine-data from microservices architectures can’t be force fed into legacy, server-based models, and you should never be penalized for creating custom telemetry that will benefit your business and your customers.

Sumo Logic’s flexible credit-based licensing hands complete control to customers and never penalizes usage or architecture choices. And the Infrequent Data Tier removes the Data Tax and allows customers to ingest data without worrying about excessive analytics costs.
