Step 1: Configure Fields in Sumo Logic

Create the following Fields in Sumo Logic prior to configuring the collection. This ensures that your logs and metrics are tagged with relevant metadata, which is required by the app dashboards. For information on setting up fields, see the Fields help page.

If you are using MySQL in a non-Kubernetes environment create the fields:

  • component
  • environment
  • db_system
  • db_cluster

If you are using MySQL in a Kubernetes environment create the fields:

  • pod_labels_component
  • pod_labels_environment
  • pod_labels_db_system
  • pod_labels_db_cluster
