This guide has information about how Sumo ingests and saves metric data, source-specific metric collection volume facts, Sumo features for limiting excessive metric ingestion, and how to track your metrics ingestion.
In this section, we'll introduce the following concepts:
📄️ Data Limits for Metrics
It is important to understand the volume of metrics that you are ingesting into Sumo Logic.
📄️ Disabled Metrics Sources
Sumo Logic sometimes disables metrics Sources in response to excessive volume of time series.
📄️ Metric Ingestion and Storage
How long Sumo stores raw metric data points, one minute roll-ups, and one hour roll-ups.
📄️ Metric Throttling
Information about how Sumo throttles metric when your metrics ingestion exceeds your data points per minute (DPM) burst limit.
