Micro Lesson

This micro lesson can help you get started with Tracing.

Trace data is visualized through filtered trace lists and icicle charts allowing you to find and troubleshoot faulty transactions easily. See how easy it is to view and investigate traces.

Traces are collected with SumoLogic Kubernetes Collection through an HTTP Traces Source. HTTP Trace Sources are set up automatically with Sumo Logic Kubernetes Collection version 1.1.0+. 

Next Steps

See Getting Started with Transaction Tracing for details on how to set up your collection environment.
