Cloud-to-Cloud Info

States

When you create a C2C Source, it goes through the following states:

  1. Pending. Once the Source is submitted, it is validated, stored, and placed in a Pending state.
  2. Started. A collection task is created on the Hosted Collector.
  3. Initialized. The task configuration is complete in Sumo Logic.
  4. Authenticated. The Source is successfully authenticated with the vendor API(s).
  5. Collecting. The Source is actively collecting data from the vendor API(s).

If the Source has any issues during any one of these states, it is placed in an Error state.

When you delete the Source, it is placed in a Stopping state. When it has successfully stopped, it is deleted from your Hosted Collector.

On the Collection page, the Health and Status for Sources is displayed. Use Health Events to investigate issues with collection.

Hover your mouse over the status icon to view a tooltip with a count of the detected errors and warnings. You can click on the status icon to open a Health Events panel with details on each detected issue.

Metadata fields

The checkbox only shows up if you have CSE and if the C2C already have CSE content like parsers and rules.

Error Types

When Sumo Logic detects an issue it is tracked by Health Events. The following table shows the three possible error types, the reason the error would occur, if the Source attempts to retry, and the name of the event log in the Health Event Index.

API

To restart your source using the Sumo Management API, follow the instructions below:

  • Method: POST
  • Example endpoint:
    https://api.sumologic.com/api/v1/collectors/{collector_id}/sources/{source_id}/action/restart

Sumo Logic endpoints like api.sumologic.com are different in deployments outside us1. For example, an API endpoint in Europe would begin api.eu.sumologic.com. A service endpoint in us2 (Western U.S.) would begin service.us2.sumologic.com. For more information, see Sumo Logic Endpoints.

JSON Configuration

Sources can be configured using UTF-8 encoded JSON files with the Collector Management API. See How to use JSON to configure sources, or Sumo Logic Terraform Resource if you are using Terraform,for more details.
