This Pivotal Platform Firehose Nozzle integration for Sumo Logic will allow your operations teams and app owners to monitor and troubleshoot the Cloud Foundry platform and apps in real-time, without having to install a Sumo Logic agent in your Cloud Foundry environment. Here’s how it works:
- The Sumo Logic Nozzle is a written in Go-Lang, and is an extension of the Firehose-to-Syslog Nozzle.
- The default Sumo Logic Nozzle for Pivotal Platform tile configuration will deploy 2 small VMs, each running an instance of the Sumo Logic Nozzle application.
- The nozzle will poll the firehose on a configurable interval, filter out messages per your tile configuration, and securely send those logs and metrics to a cloud-based HTTP API in the Sumo Logic SaaS service.
- The tile allows you to configure the polling and batching intervals, toggle verbose log mode, and add additional metadata to the logs and metrics.
