How it Works

This Pivotal Cloud Foundry 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 PCF 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.
