Sumo Logic integration

The Sensu Sumo Logic Handler plugin is a Sensu handler that sends Sensu observability events and metrics to a Sumo Logic HTTP Logs and Metrics Source. This handler sends Sensu events as log entries, a set of metrics, or both, depending on the mode of operation you specify.

PRO TIP: Use the Sensu Catalog to enable this integration directly from your browser. Follow the Catalog prompts to configure the Sensu resources you need and start processing your observability data with a few clicks.


  • Query events and metrics points within Sumo Logic: the handler automatically mutates metrics data by creating a top-level object with metric point names and their associated values.
  • Tunable arguments: use Sensu annotations to set Sumo Logic source name, host, and category; metric dimensions; log fields; and more.
  • Use event-based templating to include observation data from event attributes to add meaningful, actionable context.
  • Keep your Sumo Logic HTTP Logs and Metrics Source URL secure with Sensu environment variables and secrets management.
