Install the App

As part of this beta, the app will automatically be installed in the Sumo Logic account of your choice as part of the Admin recommended folder. 


Panels will start to fill automatically once you have configured the collection. 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 time, you'll see full graphs and maps.

Dashboard Filter 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.
