Traces provide transactional intelligence for distributed workflows, by combining telemetry from traces, logs, and metrics in the context of real-time automatically tracked application topology.

You can observe apps and microservices at the level of individual requests to pinpoint issues with particular microservices. Powered by OpenTelemetry, our tracing capabilities provide an open and flexible standard for the observability of microservice transactions without vendor lock-in. If your Sumo Logic service package has been upgraded to include Traces, you will see a Traces tab available in Sumo Logic.

Trace data is visualized through filtered trace lists and icicle charts allowing you to find and troubleshoot faulty transactions easily. See how easy it is to view and investigate traces.

Traces are collected with SumoLogic Kubernetes Collection or a standalone OpenTelemetry collector through an HTTP Traces Source.

See Getting Started with Transaction Tracing for details on how to set up your collection environment.
