Account Capacity Limitations

  • An account that is within its limits is defined as using Reserved Capacity.
  • An account that is over its limits is defined as using On-Demand Capacity.

Continuous Query Limitations

For all Sumo Logic account types (except for Sumo Logic Free) there is an overall limit of 1,000 continuous queries per Sumo Logic organization that can be run at one time. This includes Dashboard Panels, Alerts, and all other types of queries. 

Data Limits for Metrics

For billing and reporting purposes, data volume for metrics is measured in Data Points per Minute (DPM). When the DPM limit is exceeded, data is cached on the host and the Source is throttled. The calculation of DPM varies according to the type of metric Source. For details, see Data Limits for Metrics

Important notes on Sumo Logic Free accounts

Using a Free account is a great way to get to know Sumo Logic. While you're trying the Sumo Logic service, there are a few points that are important to be aware of:

  • Free accounts run on seven-day intervals. This means that over the course of seven days, you can't upload more than a total of 3.5GB of log data.
  • If you begin to reach the 500MB daily limit, Sumo Logic sends an email to let you know. You can take action to reduce the amount of data you're uploading in order to stay below the limit.
  • If the 500MB limit is surpassed, you'll receive an email letting you know that data in the Sumo Logic Cloud can no longer be searched (but additional data is still collected). However, if the data limit is fully exceeded, data collection stops (in addition to search being disabled). Disabled features will be available after your usage falls below 3.5GB when averaged over seven days (this could take one day, or up to seven days, depending on the amount of data you've uploaded and where you've uploaded it).
  • In extreme situations, Free accounts may be disabled if the data volume continues to exceed the limits.
  • Free accounts are limited to 20 continuous queries, including Dashboard Panels.
  • Because Free accounts run on seven-day intervals, Dashboard Panel queries may not use a time range longer than seven days.
  • For Sumo Logic Apps, Free accounts are limited to install the Log Analysis QuickStart app.
  • The limitations of a Free account can't be changed, but you can upgrade to a Professional account at any time.
  • For information on throttling and account caps, see Manage Ingestion.

Important notes on Sumo Logic Trial accounts

Using a Trial account is a great way to learn about the advanced features of Sumo Logic. While you're trying the Sumo Logic service, there are a few points that are important to be aware of:

  • Trial accounts are allowed to burst up to 5GB a day for short periods.
  • For information on throttling and account caps, see Manage Ingestion.
