Sumo Logic OpenTelemetry Collector

The Sumo Logic OpenTelemetry (OTel) Collector is our next-generation collector, built on OpenTelemetry, that provides a single unified agent to send logs, metrics, traces, and metadata for Observability to Sumo Logic. This can help simplify and streamline the performance and behavior monitoring of complex distributed systems, making it easier to identify and diagnose issues and improve overall system reliability and efficiency.

What makes the Sumo Logic OTel Collector unique is its flexibility and scalability. It can be easily deployed as a containerized application on any cloud platform, and it supports a wide range of data sources, including AWS CloudWatch, Prometheus, and Jaeger. This means that organizations can use the collector to gain deeper visibility into their distributed systems, no matter where they are hosted.

Once the data is collected, the Sumo Logic platform provides powerful analytics capabilities, enabling users to gain insights into their applications and systems, troubleshoot issues, and optimize their operations. With its user-friendly interface and powerful features, the Sumo Logic OTel Collector is an ideal choice for organizations looking to gain a deeper understanding of their distributed systems and improve their overall performance and reliability.
