How to Use the Search Page

On the Search page, in the Search tab, you can enter simple or complex queries with time parameters to search your entire Sumo Logic data repository. You can select searches and run them from your Search Libraries. Your search results display in the Messages tab (for raw message data) or the Aggregates tab (for grouped results).

On the Aggregates tab, use the table chart column headers to sort your results. 

You can run a saved searchpause, or stop searches, or schedule a search to run periodically and notify you of the results by email.
