Sumo Logic transaction tracing provides cloud-native transactional intelligence for distributed business workflows, by enriching and analyzing traces, logs, and metrics in real-time with automated generated application topology. All telemetry signals are fully integrated to provide a seamless end-to-end experience during the process of managing and responding to production incidents and to reduce downtime by streamlining root cause analysis.

Sumo Logic tracing supports the OpenTelemetry standard as well as other legacy open standards and libraries for tracing (e.g. OpenTracing, OpenCensus, Jaeger, Zipkin) and leverages open source componentry from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to collect distributed tracing data.

Once you have set up trace collection see how to analyze your traces in Sumo Logic.
