AWS Monitoring: See across your AWS environment to resolve issues faster

Use Sumo Logic’s deep AWS integrations and out-of-the-box content for unified visibility of AWS services and lightning-fast troubleshooting.

The advantage is clear. Why customers choose Sumo Logic for AWS monitoring

Customers turn to us for their observability needs because we offer clarity across their growing number of AWS accounts and regions.

Eliminate data silos and tool and service sprawl

Unify visibility in a single pane of glass across key Amazon Web Services (AWS), such as EC2, ECS, RDS, ElastiCache, API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, Application ELB, Network ELB, SNS and SQS.

Eliminate data silos and tool and service sprawl

Reduce Mean Time To Resolve (MTTR)

Visualize anomalous events of interest across multiple AWS infrastructure services for DevOps teams to quickly identify the root cause of performance issues and application incidents. Sumo Logic's Root Cause Explorer monitors AWS cloud resources to automate anomaly detection, establishing an activity baseline and surfacing high deviation events.

Frequently asked questions

Why is AWS monitoring important?

To keep operations running smoothly, organizations need quick access to insights from their AWS services, such as clarity on whether an application issue is affecting instances in certain regions or availability zones. AWS monitoring is key to ensuring optimal application performance.

The challenge? Getting a unified view of your accounts, regions and services for AWS monitoring purposes can be difficult. Sumo Logic makes AWS monitoring easier by offering you a single pane of glass with unified visibility of your AWS environment.

Once you've achieved a unified view for monitoring AWS, you can begin troubleshooting more effectively. Our Root Cause Explorer technology helps teams visualize anomalous events of interest across multiple AWS services. From Root Cause Explorer, users can drill down into related logs to determine the root cause of incidents. These capabilities help organizations maximize uptime and accelerate incident resolution.

How is monitoring different than observability?

There are many discussions in the DevOps world about the difference between monitoring and observability. Monitoring, by definition, is the process of collecting, analyzing and using data to track various systems. Meanwhile, observability leverages all the data from logs, metrics and traces to help development teams detect and resolve any issues. Observability focuses on understanding the context of all of the metrics and the internal state of your infrastructure.

In simple terms, monitoring captures and displays data, and observability is understanding system health through inputs and outputs.

How do I get full visibility into my AWS environment?

Sumo Logic's log aggregation capabilities and machine learning and pattern detection give enterprises detailed monitoring visibility into AWS deployments to manage application monitoring and performance, maintain the security of AWS cloud environments and comply with internal and external standards for cloud computing.

Which AWS services does Sumo Logic's solution support out of the box?

Sumo Logic's AWS Observability solution supports the following AWS resources and services: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), Relational Database Service (RDS), ElastiCache, API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, Application Elastic Load Balancer (ELB), Network ELB and Amazon SNS. You can also satisfy your AWS monitoring needs by installing individual apps for specific AWS services.

How is Sumo Logic's observability offering different from Amazon CloudWatch?

Sumo Logic's observability solution and Amazon CloudWatch are both cloud-based monitoring and observability tools, but there are some key differences between the two:

  1. Data sources beyond AWS: Sumo Logic can collect and analyze logs, metrics and traces from a wide range of data sources, from multi-cloud and on-premises environments. Sumo Logic provides a centralized platform for full-stack observability, enabling you to gain deep insights into the performance of your applications and infrastructure. Amazon CloudWatch, on the other hand, primarily collects and analyzes metrics and logs from AWS services.
  2. Integrations and pre-built visualizations: Sumo Logic offers a wide range of integrations with third-party tools and platforms. Users can take advantage of over 175 applications that provide out-of-the-box dashboards for many of the most popular web servers, databases, and other common data sources. Amazon CloudWatch has fewer integrations and dashboard customization options than Sumo Logic.
  3. Advanced analytics: Sumo Logic’s robust search query language empowers teams with a rich operator library and easy-to-use search templates to quickly filter real-time insights and results. Identify and predict anomalies in real-time with outlier detection, and uncover root causes using LogReduce® and LogCompare pattern analysis. Amazon CloudWatch also provides alerting and notification features, but Sumo Logic has more alerting capabilities.

Overall, while both Sumo Logic and Amazon CloudWatch are powerful, Sumo Logic's platform can provide robust observability for organizations that need out-of-the-box visibility for AWS and other data sources.

How does Sumo Logic work with AWS?

As a cloud-native SaaS solution, Sumo Logic made a strategic bet to go all in with AWS early in our company's history. In 2021, Sumo Logic was named AWS's ISV Partner of the Year, recognizing our decade-long commitment to helping customers drive innovation on AWS. Our solution helps organizations accelerate their AWS migrations, confidently monitor AWS infrastructure and diagnose and troubleshoot performance issues. You can learn more about our customers' AWS monitoring success stories here.

In addition, we have earned several AWS Service Ready designations over the years. Designations like AWS Lambda Ready Partner and AWS Graviton Ready Partner demonstrate our technical commitment to supporting best practices for organizations as they grow their investment in AWS.

Does Sumo Logic support AWS Graviton?

Yes, Sumo Logic's installed collectors can be deployed on AWS Graviton instances to collect important telemetry. Version 19.403-1 and above support deployment on Linux ARM/Aarch64-based instances. We are happy to support organizations using Graviton processors to optimize the cost of workloads running in EC2.

Do you offer tools that provide visibility into Amazon Web Service costs?

Yes, Sumo Logic users interested in monitoring AWS costs and usage may take advantage of our AWS Cost Explorer application.

This app lets you access pre-built dashboards that identify the AWS services or regions that generate your highest costs alongside cost trends over time. You can track amortized, blended, and unblended costs at monthly or daily granularity. These insights can inform future cost and usage projections. If you already use our AWS Observability solution and set up the application, you can switch between your performance and cost data within Sumo Logic.
