The Nginx Plus Ingress app is a unified logs and metrics app that helps you monitor the availability, performance, health and resource utilization of your Nginx Plus Ingress web servers. Preconfigured dashboards and searches provide insight into server status, location zones, server zones, upstreams, resolvers, visitor locations, visitor access types, traffic patterns, errors, web server operations and access from known malicious sources.

Log and Metrics Types

The Sumo Logic App for Nginx Plus Ingress assumes the NCSA extended/combined log file format for Access logs and the default Nginx error log file format for error logs.

All Dashboards (except the Error logs Analysis dashboard) assume the Access log format. The Error logs Analysis Dashboard assumes both Access and Error log formats, so as to correlate information between the two.

The Sumo Logic App for Nginx Plus Ingress assumes Prometheus format Metrics for Requests, Connections, and Ingress controller.
