Nginx ULM is a web server that can be used as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy, and HTTP cache.
The Sumo Logic App for Nginx ULM helps you monitor webserver activity in Nginx. The preconfigured dashboards provide information about site visitors, including the location of visitors, devices/operating systems, and browsers used; and information about server activity, including bots observed and error information.
Log and Metrics Types
The Sumo Logic App for Nginx 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 assumes Prometheus format Metrics for Requests and Connections. For Nginx Server metrics, Stub_Status Module from Nginx Configuration is used.
