Nginx is a web server that is used as a reverse proxy, load balancer, mail proxy, and HTTP cache. Global Intelligence for Nginx, is a companion to the Nginx ULM application. It helps DevOps and infrastructure engineers to compare server, and user activity patterns associated with their Nginx servers against other Sumo Logic customer’s servers. Such comparisons can help diagnose potential load, throughput or error issues in Nginx clusters and avoid operational incidents arising from sub-optimal configurations of Nginx clusters. 

GI Nginx - 01 Golden SignalsThis dashboard compares golden signals of load (requests per second), throughput (responses by type) and errors for a company’s Nginx servers compared to other servers. Unusual levels of these signals compared to benchmarks can indicate configuration or operational issues.
GI Nginx - 02 Visitor BenchmarksThese panels compare unique visitor rates, bots and client platforms served by your company's Nginx servers versus Nginx servers of other companies to assess if unusual patterns in these indicators correlate with golden signals. 

Data Sources 

Global Intelligence for Nginx App uses logs data from Nginx clusters. Like the Sumo Logic App for Nginx, it assumes the NCSA extended/combined log file format for Access logs and the default Nginx error log file format for error logs. For more details on Nginx logs. 

Sample Query 

The following sample query is from the Average Requests Per Second: My Company v Benchmark panel of GI Nginx - 01 Golden Signals dashboard.
