Sumo Logic

Nginx

Nginx is a web server that can also be used as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy and HTTP cache.

The Sumo Logic App for Nginx helps you monitor web server activity in Nginx. The preconfigured dashboards provide information about site visitors, including location of visitors, devices/operating systems, and browsers used; and information about server activity, including bots observed and error information.

Log 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 Web Server Operations dashboard) assume the Access log format. The Web Server Operations Dashboard assumes both Access and Error log formats, so as to correlate information between the two.
