We’ve released a new chart type for metrics queries. The funnel chart is useful for visualizing the status of a process with sequential steps. For more information, see Create a Funnel Chart.

On November 10, we released improvements to the Account Overview page. Now, an admin for a parent org can see detailed usage of Sumo Credits for different product variables, aggregated across child orgs from the start of the contract period. Another nice enhancement: the Account Overview page now also presents Promotional Credits consumption. For more information, see Create and Manage Orgs.

AWS ELB users can now install Sumo Logic out-of-the-box SLOs and associated monitors using our new Terraform script.

This script allows you to install Sumo Logic SLOs in your specified AWS ELB directory and configure SLO alert notifications (e.g., latency limit breached, server error limit breached). Once installed, you can view and edit your SLO alerts via Terraform or from your Sumo Logic Monitors page.

To learn more about our SLOs, see Sumo Logic Reliability management.

As of December 1, 2022, metrics ingested to Sumo Logic must include the metric dimension.

If you send metrics without the metric dimension, Sumo Logic will ingest them, and set the metric dimension value to undefined. We plan to deprecate and filter these metrics at a later date.

There are benefits to including the metric dimension: it improves the structure of queries, dashboards, and monitors. In addition, the presence of the metric dimension can significantly improve query latency and monitor evaluation time.

For more information see Mandatory metric name.

We're pleased to announce a new chart type for metric queries. A heat map visualizes the count of data points returned by a metrics query within specified value ranges over time intervals of a specified duration. For more information, see Create a Heat Map.

Good news! We've increased the number of Metrics Monitors that Enterprise and Trial accounts can have, from 500 to 1,500. For more information, see Monitors.

We are pleased to announce that the Sumo Logic Lambda Extension is updated to support collecting telemetry data using the new AWS Lambda Telemetry API. With this update, you can collect telemetry data, including logs, metrics, and traces in JSON format directly from the Lambda execution level. The extension gives a per-invoke level view of the Lambda function and provides insights into the function and execution environment lifecycle. For more information on how to start using it, refer to our documentation.

We’ve rolled out a feature that allows you to customize your Alert list page to display (by default) only the alerts that you care about, rather than showing all the open alerts within your organization.

You can do this by going to your Monitors page or Alerts page and subscribing to the specific monitors you'd like to follow.

With this release, we've also updated our Alert notification preferences to give you more granular control over specific monitor activity you want to follow.

Update - Tracing dashboards now offer native support for OpenTelemetry's deployment.environment standard tag.

OpenTelemetry deployment.environment is a helpful way of slicing APM data between environments (e.g. dev vs prod). Previously, this was supported in tracing metrics as metadata and available for custom queries and dashboards, and now it's supported in our out-of-the-box dashboards as well.

  • New Explore view: APM: Environment View
  • New dashboard elements ...across environments and ...within environment show data sliced or filtered for recognized environments
  • environment added to Entity Inspector as new entity
  • environment filter added to all drill-down views
  • Application Service View and Service Application View renamed to APM: Application view and APM: Service View, respectively. Both views now have a hierarchy level with deployment.environment.

This method features POSIX and PowerShell scripts to trigger the Cloud Formation template for creating a stack to enable complete visibility into your AWS account infrastructure's health and reliability.

Alerts

Update - We’re continuing to make alerts and monitors more customizable to give you control over how often you are notified. You can now:

  • Visually indicate Alerting Query: For Metrics monitors with multiple query rows, we now visually indicate the alerting query row with a notification bell icon.
  • Improved JSON Validations for Connection Payloads: We're enforcing stricter JSON validation during creation and updating of Connections to prevent errors that could cause notification failures in the future. There are two major validations that we have started enforcing:
    • If there is a trailing comma (,) after the last "key": "value" in the JSON Payload structure, we will error out.
    • If there are multiple keys with the same name at the same level within a JSON payload, we will throw an error.
  • Monitor Alerts/Recovery Condition changes: We no longer support Log Monitors with an Alert threshold condition of “less than 0” or “greater or equal to 0” . This is because Log queries always result in 0 (when there is no data) or more (when there is data) rows, and monitors that were configured with these conditions were not firing alerts.
metrics-monitor-query-row

Update - We’ve made alerts and monitors more customizable to give you control over how often you are notified. You can now:

  • Customize the alert name to differentiate between multiple alerts created from the same monitor.
  • Choose recovery based on “Single Data point” meeting the recovery threshold or “all data points” meeting the threshold before the alert is resolved.

Update - Traces can now show aggregated trace duration critical path contribution (CPC) breakdown chart summarized for all traces from the Traces query result set.

Use this chart to:

  • Quickly understand intermittent duration spikes or slowdowns
  • Immediately spot offending service by comparing CPC contribution by service

New - We are excited to announce support for Span Links is now available in Tracing. You can navigate between spans using hyperlinks in the metadata tab as well as search for spans in the trace query and span analytics areas. Span Links are part of OpenTelemetry specification and should be added on the instrumentation side. Links can point to Spans inside a single Trace or across different traces and can represent, for example, batch operations where a span is initiated by multiple initiating spans. For more information, see View and Investigate Traces.

Update - We’re making some architectural changes to the Sumo Logic Metrics Engine to support on-going functionality and scalability improvements. The changes may have some impact on query language semantics for queries that use aggregation or reducer operators.

For aggregation queries, the changes are limited to the metadata used to label the metric dimension in the Preview Table in the Metrics Explorer, and in the chart legend. For queries with reducer functions–eval, filter, topk, bottomk–there may be a slight difference in how we quantize the metric data. The engine updates will be rolled out starting on June 13, 2022. For information how the updates might affect existing metrics queries, and how you can update existing queries to avoid any impact, see ​​Metrics Engine Updates.

March 16, 2021 (Manage)

Update - Scheduled View queries now provide syntax highlighting and support multiple lines and comments.


March 16, 2021 (Alerts)

Update - We have resolved a discrepancy in the notification payload of Real Time Scheduled Searches.

Previously, the payload for subsequent real time alerts in a given time range would incrementally report the results and omit the records that were already present in the previous alert.

For example, if the Scheduled Search initially returned 10 records, the first alert notification would contain 10 records in the payload. If the next run contained the same 10 records plus 1 additional, the notification payload would only contain the single new record.

Going forward, we will ensure that the records sent in the notification payload will always contain all the records returned in the Scheduled Search. Following the above example, the next run of the Real Time Scheduled Search would return 11 records. This change ensures that the payload will always match the results of the search in Sumo Logic.


March 12, 2021-12 (Collection)

New - Our Cloud-to-Cloud Integration Framework has the following new Sources:


March 11, 2021 (Metrics)

As part of this release we have documented changes included in each version of our CloudFormation installation template, which will help you understand when to upgrade.


February 3, 2021 (Manage)

Update - There are two changes to the Partitions page in the Sumo Logic UI. What we previously called the General Index is now the Default Continuous Partition. This is where any data you ingest that isn't assigned to a partition goes. You'll also notice that the Partitions page now lists Sumo Logic internal indexes, like the Audit Event Index and the Data Volume Index. This gives you the flexibility to manage the retention period for each index independently. By default, each internal index has the same retention period as the Default Continuous Partition.


January 22, 2021 (Metrics)

Update - We've made a small change to the Metrics Explorer that makes a big difference:  Advanced Mode now supports auto-complete. Now, just as in Basic Mode, you can construct metric queries in Advanced Mode by selecting metadata fields, dimensions, metrics, and operators from pull-down lists.


January 22, 2021 (Infrastructure)

Update - We've updated the troubleshooting links in the Infrastructure tab to be easier to understand. The original buttons have been replaced with a dropdown menu with labels next to the buttons.

We are pleased to announce that we are extending support of these variables to Scheduled Searches and Metrics Monitors pages.


January 15, 2021 (Dashboard (New))

Update - Dashboard (New) now offers a dark theme. Dark Theme makes dashboards pop by putting light colored visualizations and text on top of a darker background. This enables you to build gorgeous dashboards with eye-catching contrast.

Update - Categorical column and bar charts from metrics queries now have a Group By setting that lets you group data by other dimensions.


January 11, 2021 (Alerts)

Update - The payload editor for webhook connections provides syntax highlighting, indentation, and validation.

This is an archive of the 2020 Sumo Logic Service Release Notes. The current Service Release Notes are here.


New - Search can parse JSON logs automatically with Dynamic Parsing. Now you don't have to write parse expressions or update queries if your log schema changes.


December 22, 2020 (Manage)

Update - We've brought you greater control over your data: now you can update an existing partition's routing expression, which determines what data goes into the partition. (You have to be a Sumo Logic admin or have the Manage Partitions role capability.) 

Changing the scope of a partition is useful if you simply want to route more or less data to an existing partition. Better yet, it allows you to re-route some or all of the data in an existing partition to a different Data Tier than the one it currently resides in. If you decide that some of the data in a partition belongs in a different tier than the one currently configured, you can edit the scope of that partition to exclude that data, and create a new partition for it that targets the desired tier.

For more information, see Edit a Partition.


December 21, 2020 (Apps)

Update - The CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection App has been updated to include a new dashboard to provide visibility into Falcon incidents.

November 16, 2020 (Apps)

New - AWS Firewall Network app provides visibility into traffic flows, through alerts generated by AWS Network Firewall.


November 16, 2020 (Dashboards)

You can now easily link dashboards together to quickly view related data. Each panel can have links to other dashboards. Links have options to include metadata and time range. When viewing the summary tab on a panel with linked dashboards you'll have the option to select from linked dashboards.


Update - We're pleased to announce a improved search experience for Data Tier users. You can use the new _dataTier search modifier to restrict a log search to a particular Data Tier (Continuous/Frequent/Infrequent). For more information, see Searching Data Tiers


November 13, 2020 (Security)

New - If you have multiple Sumo Logic accounts, we've got good news for you: we've introduced custom Sumo Logic subdomains. By default, the subdomain in the URL for accessing Sumo Logic is "service", like this:

service.sumologic.com

Multiple orgs with identical domain names can result in authentication headaches. Now, your account owner can replace the "service" subdomain for each of your orgs with a distinct subdomain. For example:

west1.sumologic.com

Then, the links that Sumo Logic generates, for example when you share queries or dashboards, will contain your custom subdomain. These subdomain-enabled links will direct the user to the correct account for authentication.  

When subdomains are enabled for an org, you'll see your SAML SP-initiated login options on the Sumo Logic login page.


November 13, 2020 (Apps)

New - Sumo Logic AWS Lambda extension enables you to get instant visibility into the health and performance of your mission-critical applications using AWS Lambda. With this extension and Sumo Logic's continuous intelligence platform, you can now ensure that all your Lambda functions are running as expected by analyzing function, platform, and extension logs to quickly identify and remediate errors and exceptions.


November 05, 2020 (Collection)

New - We're thrilled to announce our new Cloud-to-Cloud Integration Framework.

The Cloud-to-Cloud Integration framework is an extensible system for running fully hosted, pull, and pub-sub based sources. Traditionally, Sumo Logic collection has been push-based, where we expose an endpoint to which data sources or collector agents push data to us. However, many SaaS applications and Cloud Providers expose event data that describe user, system/application activity which is critical for operations monitoring, security, and compliance use cases. The Cloud-to-Cloud Integration Framework is the system by which we provide integrations to these sources and SaaS applications.

This release comes with two new Sources, Okta and Netskope. Our existing apps are updated to work with these two new Sources.

The Cloud-to-Cloud Integration Framework is an extensible architecture, in which new Sources can be easily added in the future. Check out the Sources we have available in beta.


November 05, 2020 (Apps)

Update - We're happy to announce that the updated version of Sumo Logic App for Azure WebApp is compatible with the new Azure Monitor based Collection.


October 30, 2020 (Security)

New - We're pleased to announce a new role capability that allows a Sumo Logic admin to limit the ability of users to create Access Keys. Currently, all Sumo Logic users can create Access Keys on the Preferences page. (Access Keys allow a user to register collectors and to use Sumo Logic APIs.) With the new Create Access Keys capability, you can limit the ability to create Access Keys to only those roles that require it. Note that, with this update, all roles in your Sumo account have the Create Access Keys capability. To restrict access, your Sumo Logic administrator can remove the capability from roles that do not require it. 

New - We've released a new security policy you can use to set a maximum timeout for Sumo Logic UI web sessions. Sumo Logic users can set their web session timeout on the Preferences page, up to a maximum of 7 days. If you are a Sumo Logic admin with the Manage Organizational Settings role capability, you can now specify the maximum web session timeout period that users in your org can select. For more information, see Set a Maximum Web Session Timeout.


Update - Just wanted to let you know that we've made an underlying change to our XML Parsing library for parsing XML-formatted logs. The following minor behavioral chances will change how results are returned from parsing XML log:

1. Empty nodes will be returned as self closing tags

For example - Consider the following xml log line (see last empty tag)\ <users><user id="emptytag" role="manager"><first_name>Sally</first_name><last_name>Jones</last_name><email>sally@emailplace.com</email></user><user id="456" role="contributor"><first_name>Bob</first_name><last_name>Smith</last_name><email>bob@emailplace.com</email></user><user></user></users>

Query:\ _sourceCategory=stag/xmltest ("678" or "emptytag")\ | limit 5\ | parse xml "/users/user[3]" as first_name nodrop

Old lib would return \ New lib would return \ 2. Extra spaces in XML tags will be trimmed.

For example - Consider the following xml log line (see the extra space in yellow)\ <users><user id="678" role="manager"><first_name>Sally</first_name><last_name>Jones</last_name><email>sally@emailplace.com</email></user><user          id="456" role="contributor"><first_name>Bob</first_name><last_name>Smith</last_name><email>bob@emailplace.com</email></user></users>

Query:\ <code>_sourceCategory=stag/xmltest ("678" or "emptytag")\ | limit 5\ | parse xml "/users/user[2]" as first_name nodrop

Old lib would return: <user          id="456" role="contributor"><first_name>Bob</first_name><last_name>Smith</last_name><email>bob@emailplace.com</email></user>\ New lib would return: <user id="456" role="contributor"><first_name>Bob</first_name><last_name>Smith</last_name><email>bob@emailplace.com</email></user><code>


October 23, 2020 (Observability)

Update - We have rolled out audit logging support for Monitors. Create, read, update, and delete operations of Monitors are logged in the Audit Event Index.


October 23, 2020 (Apps)

New - We're happy to announce the Windows JSON App based on the JSON event log format and provides insight into the operations of the Windows system operation and events so that you can better manage and maintain your environment. The Windows JSON App is based on the JSON Windows event log format and consists of predefined searches and dashboards that provide visibility into your environment for real-time analysis of overall usage of Security Status, System Activity, Updates, User Activity, and Applications.

New - Active Directory JSON assists you in monitoring the Windows Active Directory deployment by analyzing Active Directory logs in the JSON based event log format. The app includes predefined searches and dashboards that provide user activity into your environment for real-time analysis of overall usage.


October 21, 2020 (Manage)

Update - Webhook payload variables need to be in mustache format. You do this by wrapping each variable in double curly brackets, like {{variable}}. In February 2018 we introduced this format. We did not deprecate the previous format using a dollar sign, like $variable. Going forward, we will only support mustache format.

::: Note: The US1 and US2 deployments are scheduled to have this update next week. ::: This change was communicated to administrators of accounts still using the old format. Any existing alerts using the old format have been automatically switched to the new format.


October 21, 2020 (Metrics)

Change - We made some nice changes to our approach to disabling metric sources that generate too many unique time series. Instead of completely disabling a noisy metric source, we take a more fine-grained approach by dropping the offending dimension or dimensions.

Also, we've implemented a global limit for unique time series, across all your metric sources. That gives you some wiggle room---you can have some metric sources that generate lots of unique time series, and as long as the volume across all your metric sources doesn't exceed the global limit, you're good. If you are leveraging Short Term retention in Transformation Rules, you also get significantly higher capacity on the cardinality before being impacted.

Finally, we've increased the limit of unique time series a Logs-to-Metrics rule can produce. For more information, see Disabled Metric Sources and Logs-to-Metrics.


New - We're happy to announce the release of new and improved Lookup Tables. We've improved performance, increased the allowable table size, and made Lookup Tables easier to create and manage.

October 5, 2020 (Observability)

We're excited to announce the general availability of our Observability Solution will be rolling out in the next 48 hours! This feature-rich solution expands to new environments like Kubernetes, and includes tools like Transaction Tracing that work together to ensure you are able to efficiently monitor, troubleshoot, and diagnose issues.

Sumo Logic Observability can help you:

  • Monitor critical indicators of reliability such as errors or latency. 
  • Diagnose or isolate services or resources that might be the immediate cause of reliability issues.
  • Troubleshoot and uncover root cause(s) to guide recovery as well as on-going application reliability.

As it relates to monitoring, the Observability solution now includes:

  • Unified Alerting, across logs and metrics data sources with the ability to specify alert criticality, configure detection rules, set up multiple channels for receiving notifications,  auto-resolve incidents, and a central landing page to triage, administer and manage alerts.

  • AWS Observability features 40+ dashboards to monitor infrastructure on AWS in a comprehensive and intuitive manner across AWS accounts, regions and resource types down to individual entities.

    Diagnosing incidents just got easier with:

  • Transaction Tracing to observe apps and microservices to the level of individual requests and pinpoint issues with particular microservices. Our OpenTelemetry standard based tracing capabilities provide an open and flexible standard for observability of microservices transactions without vendor lock-in.  If your service package capabilities have been upgraded to include Tracing, you should see a "Tracing" tab available in your Sumo Logic UI. To start using Tracing or taking advantage of our promotion (90 days worth of trial capacity for free), contact your Sumo representative to activate.

  • Re-vamped Metrics Explorer that decreases the complexity of finding and visualizing your metrics data with a new structured query builder, and an extended range of visualizations for ad-hoc analysis. Mimicking the Dashboard (New) workflow, you now have the same unified experience in the main metrics tab.

  • Global Intelligence for AWS CloudTrail **DevOp**s that helps on-call staff isolate or eliminate AWS errors (availability, throttling, out of stock) as probable cause for their incidents. Available for Enterprise accounts. 

Troubleshooting incidents can now be streamlined thanks to:

  • Root Cause Explorer, an AIOps breakthrough that helps on-call staff accelerate troubleshooting and root cause isolation for incidents in their apps and microservices running on AWS by detecting anomalies in 500+ AWS CloudWatch metrics and automatically categorizes anomalies by incident timeline, AWS account, region, namespace, entities, AWS tags, and more dimensions. This is not enabled by default in your account, and requires you to install the AWS Observability solution, and be an Enterprise account holder.
  • Behavior Insights leverages machine learning to detect patterns, outliers, and changes in underlying service behavior to isolate and automatically explain the root causes of application issues.

Underneath these capabilities is expanded support for Open Source frameworks including Open Telemetry for tracing data and Telegraf for increasing the breadth of technologies we collect metrics from.

New - Sharing is good, over-sharing, not so much. So, we've added a new security policy you can use to ensure that shared dashboards don't display data that users they're shared with shouldn't see. The new policy is Data Access Level for Shared Dashboards. If your role grants you the "Manage organization settings" capability, you can enable the new policy on the Manage > Security > Policies page. By default, once you enable this policy, any newly-created dashboards will run under the role search filter of the users it is shared with.

Also with the goal of giving you better control of your data, we've introduced a new role capability: "Change Data Access Level of Dashboards". Users with this capability can change the data access level of dashboards that are shared with them with edit or manage permission.


Update - An underlying change has occurred in the ASN lookup operator because of a change made by our vendor. You ---## May see the organization ID instead of the name in the results. We are working on an update to make things consistent, but for now, you may see unexpected returns.

Update - By popular demand, we've made some changes to the capabilities you can assign to roles in Sumo Logic. Our goal was to give you more fine-grained control of Sumo functionality when you set up roles. Here's what we did:

  • We replaced the Manage Indexes capability with four new capabilities: View Partitions, Manage Partitions, View Scheduled Views, and Manage Scheduled Views. Any existing role that previously had the Manage Index capability now has four new capabilities.
  • We provided new capabilities that you can use to provide view-only access to Field Extraction Rules.  
  • We added two capabilities related the Fields feature: View Fields and Manage Fields.

So what do you need to do because of this change? There's nothing you have to do. However, if you'd like to let users view information about resources like Partitions, Scheduled Views, Fields, and Field Extraction Rules without letting them change them, you can easily accomplish that with the new view-only capabilities.  


Update - Scheduled Search no longer permits Static Time ranges to be set when scheduling a search. You must choose a relative time range, This is to ensure the longevity of your scheduled searches and to help you get useful results.

New - We are pleased to announce Global Intelligence for AWS CloudTrail DevOps, which guides infrastructure engineers, on-call staff and DevOps users to accelerate root cause analysis for incidents through error rate and configuration insights benchmarked from our AWS customers for the following AWS services:

  • EC2
  • Lambda
  • Auto Scaling
  • S3
  • ELB
  • RDS
  • DynamoDB
  • ElastiCache
  • Redshift

The benchmarks rely on 15 million data points per week from AWS CloudTrail logs and baseline service availability, throttling, account quota and insufficient capacity/out-of-stock errors in 27 AWS regions by AWS service, API, account, and instance type. The app recommends configuration improvements to key AWS services based on baseline usage such as memory and concurrency settings for AWS Lambda, provisioned IOPS for DynamoDB and min/max sizes of EC2 Auto Scaling groups.

New - We added a new role capability you can use to control access to the Account Overview page in Sumo Logic. Previously, any Sumo user had view-only access to this page. The new capability is View Account Overview, and your Account Owner, and users with the Admin role now have it. Your Sumo administrator can assign the capability to other users or roles, as desired. Because users without the capability won't be able to see the Account Overview page, where your Organization ID is shown, we've updated the Preferences page in the Sumo Logic UI to also display your Organization ID. That way, users who can't view the Account Overview page can find your Organization ID, useful when dealing with Sumo Support.


If you previously had access to the Account Overview page and need the information it contains, contact your Sumo administrator to obtain access.

Sumo Logic now supports collection from AWS GovCloud regions. AWS GovCloud is a set of specific regions authorized to a FedRAMP-High baseline. GovCloud regions meet higher regulatory and compliance requirements set by government agencies and U.S. customers that manage sensitive data in the cloud. These regions are where users with strict compliance requirements ---## May operate in adherence with ITAR, FedRAMP, and DoD requirements. Users of Sumo Logic can now collect logs and metrics from AWS services and sources running with GovCloud, assuring that customers can continue to meet their regulatory requirements while using our Operational Intelligence Platform.

While Sumo Logic does provide collection of logs and metrics from GovCloud regions, Sumo Logic does not itself run in AWS GovCloud. Be aware, collection of data from AWS GovCloud means logs, metrics, and data will be leaving a FedRAMP-high environment. For this reason, we recommend that customers with elevated compliance and regulatory requirements use our FedRamp deployment.

Non-aggregate query speedup. The histogram rendering time is reduced, charting your messages faster.

Removal of 100k pause. Non-aggregate queries are no longer limited to 100k messages at a time.

Be aware of the following changes that come with these enhancements:

  • Field counts still cap at 100k messages. When the message count reaches more than 100k, you will see a message: “We only use the first 100,000 messages to calculate the field counts.”releasenotes
  • Field counts may still be loading. Field counts load asynchronously, and may still be loading after the histogram renders.
  • Receipt time still has 100k pause. If your search uses receipt time, you will still see the 100k message limit.
  • Oldest message sorts first when you reach 100k messages. Although you can have more than 100k messages in the histogram, the oldest message that will be shown is the 100k message. To get around this issue and see the range you want on the histogram, you can: Reduce the timerange and return the search. Shift+click on the histogram bar to drilldown into a specific timerange.

June 19, 2017

New UI. This release introduces a new look and feel and experience for the Sumo Logic UI. Navigation is simplified, and it’s now much easier to find the content you’re looking for.

If you're a current Sumo Logic user, you'll find that the navigation and some menu items have changed, but most of your working experience will be just as it was before. During the rollout period, we encourage you to start right away with the new UI. That way you'll get used to the changes and can start realizing the benefits. New UI highlights include:

  • Improved navigation. The menus that used to be on the top of of the UI are now on the left side (we call it the 'left nav'). The menus have been reorganized and some menu and page names have changed. See Navigate Around the New Sumo Logic UI to learn how the navigation compares for the new UI and classic UI.
  • Switch between your tasks in Sumo Logic with the tab bar. The top tab bar allows you to keep multiple pages open at the same time and easily navigate between them. The tabs persist across login sessions, and you can switch context without jumping to new browser tabs or windows. This includes having multiple dashboards open in separate tabs. See Welcome to the new Sumo Logic UI.
  • New log searches, metrics visualizations, and Live Tail sessions. It's now more convenient start working with logs or metrics. If you click the + icon in the Tabs area, you'll see options to select search, metrics, or Live Tail. See Welcome to the new Sumo Logic UI.
  • Library. The Library contents are available from the left nav or the Library page. This is the first step in providing enhanced content sharing capabilities, which we’ll be continuing to roll out in upcoming releases. See Welcome to the New Library.
  • App Catalog. You can access the App Catalog directly from the left nav to search for and install apps. See the topics under Data Types.
  • Home page. The new Home page provides quick access to recently opened dashboards and searches. See Welcome to the new Sumo Logic UI.

Keyboard shortcuts. Keyboard shortcuts have changed for the new UI. See Keyboard Shortcuts for the New UI.

Apps. The App Catalog has a new preview option. If you’re not sure what dashboards you’ll get with an app, you can click the

Preview Dashboards link in the App Catalog to see a preview of the dashboards included with the app.

New tutorials. We’ve updated our Quick Start tutorials to better reflect the different getting started experiences for setting up Sumo Logic and using Sumo Logic.

Data Volume App updated. The Sumo Logic App for Data Volume allows you to view at a glance your account's data usage volume by category, collector, source name, and hosts. The app uses predefined searches and a Dashboard that provide visibility into your environment for real-time analysis of overall usage.

The Overview dashboard has been updated to provide a more comprehensive view of your Logs and Metrics data use.

The following dashboards have also been added:

  • Data Volume - Logs See your log ingest volume in greater detail, outlining ingest spikes, outliers, and quota.
  • Data Volume (Logs) by various metadata fields - Drill down on source metadata, using the metadata you've created within Sumo to better define your log sources.

AWS Elastic Load Balancer - Classic. The AWS Elastic Load Balancer App has been renamed and updated to provide new panels and dashboards such as the Failed Dispatch Monitoring Dashboard to help you better investigate your AWS ELB usage.

Time Bucketing/Metrics quantization. When you’re visualizing metrics data, the time axis is fundamental to understanding your data.

  • Multiple time series (lines on the chart) should line up in a way that makes it easy to understand and compare behavior (for example, at 10:25AM server1 had 95% CPU usage and server2 had 50% CPU usage).
  • As you change the time scale, the granularity of the data points should change accordingly (for example, 1 second resolution for a metric over 30 days doesn’t make sense).

This capability is called quantization. The quantization interval aligns your time series data to common intervals on the time axis (for example every one minute) to optimize the visualization and performance. See Work with Metrics Visualizations.


May 2, 2017

Threat Intel Quick Analysis App. This App correlates CrowdStrike's threat intelligence data with your own log data, allowing for real-time security analytics to help you detect any threats in your environment, while protecting against sophisticated and persistent cyber-attacks.
