Scheduled View Lag Time

When you view the details of a Scheduled View, you can see who created it, creation date, lag time, query, and any error messages that may have been generated.

Scheduled Views are updated frequently.  Based on the start time chosen during Scheduled View Creation, the pre-computed data for the duration is backfilled. The successful data backfill is reflected in green on the Progress bar. As the data is being back-filled,  If the progress bar is not completely full, the gap on the rightmost end is proportional to the lag time.

In the View Details dialog, lag time is also represented in hours, minutes, and seconds.

Lag time means that data is not up to date in the Scheduled View from (now) to (now - lag duration).

It can be caused by:

  • An error in the Scheduled View query
  • Search performance issues on the Sumo Logic side
  • Data spike on the customer’s side
  • A high number of Scheduled Views

To prevent lag time, you can optimize your query, but to do so will require you to delete the existing Scheduled View and create a new one.

If you have optimized your query, and the Scheduled View still has a significant lag time, contact Support.
