AWS S3 Source

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere on the web. Add an Amazon S3 Source to upload messages to Sumo Logic.

One Amazon S3 Source can collect data from just a single S3 bucket. However, you can configure multiple S3 Sources to collect from one S3 bucket. For example, you could use one S3 Source to collect one particular data type, and then configure another S3 Source to collect another data type.

Compressed data

An S3 Source can collect either plain text or gzip-compressed text. Data is treated as plain text by default, but gzip decompression will be used if both of the following conditions apply:

  1. The target file has a .gz or .gzip extension, or no file extension.
  2. The target file's initial bytes match the gzip file format.

Configure an Amazon S3 Source

  1. Grant Sumo Logic access to an Amazon S3 bucket.
  2. Enable logging in AWS using the Amazon Console.
  3. Confirm that logs are being delivered to the Amazon S3 bucket.
  4. Add an AWS Source for the S3 Source to Sumo Logic.
