Search and Logs


Search allows you to query and analyze log data sent to Sumo Logic. There are many features to help you use our robust Search Query Language, such as LogCompare, LogReduce, LogExplain, Lookup Tables, Subqueries, and Time Compare. See Get Started with Search to begin exploring your data in Sumo Logic.

Partitions and Views

Logs collected by Sumo Logic are indexed in Partitions and Scheduled Views. In addition, there are internal indexes such as Health Events, Archive, Audit, and Volume indexes.

Data Tiers

Data Tiers provide the ability to allocate data to different storage tiers based on the frequency of access: Continuous, Frequent, and Infrequent.

To search specific Data Tiers. See Searching Data Tiers.


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

  • Search raw spans from tracing data from the last seven days. See Search Query Language support for Traces.
  • View tracing data from search log messages by right-clicking an entry and selecting Open Trace. See [View Traces] from Search Results.
