Data Forwarding allows you to forward log data to an external server or supported storage service. There are two different types of data forwarding:
- An Installed Collector can forward raw log data to an external destination at ingest time using the following protocols:
- Syslog (TCP and UDP)
- Generic REST API
- Hitachi Data Systems HTTP REST API
- Partitions or Scheduled Views can forward log data to an AWS S3 bucket. See Forwarding Data from Sumo Logic to S3 for details.
