This page has instructions for installing the Sumo Logic app for Memcached, and descriptions of each of the app dashboards. 

To install the app:

Locate and install the app you need from the App Catalog. If you want to see a preview of the dashboards included with the app before installing, click Preview Dashboards.

  1. From the App Catalog, search for and select the app. 

  2. Select the version of the service you're using and click Add to Library.

  1. To install the app, complete the following fields.

    1. App Name. You can retain the existing name, or enter a name of your choice for the app.

    2. Data Source. 

      • Choose Enter a Custom Data Filter, and enter a custom filter for Memcached cluster. Examples: 

        1. For all Memcached clusters

        2. For specific clusters:

        3. Clusters within a specific environment:
          db_cluster=memcached-1 and environment=prod
          (This assumes you have set the optional environment tag while configuring collection)

    3. Advanced. Select the Location in Library (the default is the Personal folder in the library), or click New Folder to add a new folder.

    4. Click Add to Library.

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder, or another folder that you specified. From here, you can share it with your organization. 

Panels will start to fill automatically. It's important to note that each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but with a bit of time, you'll see full graphs and maps.

Dashboard Filters with Template Variables

Template variables provide dynamic dashboards that rescope data on the fly. As you apply variables to troubleshoot through your dashboard, you can view dynamic changes to the data for a fast resolution to the root cause. For more information, see the Filter with template variables help page.
