Sumo Logic Kubernetes Collection

This page provides an overview of the collection process for Kubernetes environments.

Collection overview

Sumo Logic collects logs, events, metrics, and security data with Fluentbit, FluentD, Prometheus, and Falco. These collectors are all open source collectors that are maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The collected data streams through a centralized FluentD pipeline for metadata enrichment. Sumo Logic tags the container, pod, node, and cluster, as well as identifying the service, namespace, and deployment.
