Sumo Logic Integration Guide

Sumo Logic provides rich query and aggregation capabilities for analyzing vast amounts of log data, helping you to more rapidly troubleshoot critical infrastructure failures and complex application issues. Sumo Logic can also be configured to trigger alerts in PagerDuty based on scheduled searches, so you can react even faster.  Using PagerDuty, you can ensure that the right person is alerted via phone call, SMS, push notification, or email.
