The Sumo Logic App for Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) - Control Plane allows you to monitor resource-related logs and metrics for Kubernetes deployments, clusters, namespaces, pods, containers, and daemonsets. The app provides visibility into the GKE control plane with operational insights into the api server, control manager, and worker nodes. This App works in conjunction with Sumo Logic Kubernetes app, that provides visibility into worker node metrics and application logs.

  • Legacy Stackdriver support.
  • Stackdriver Kubernetes Engine Monitoring support.

You can choose either of these options, Sumologic App for GKE supports both Legacy Stackdriver and Stackdriver Monitoring Logs. For more information on Stackdriver options, see the following Google Cloud documentation.
