Updated 4 months ago by Michael Cretzman

Harness 24/7 Service Guard monitors your live applications, catching problems that surface minutes or hours following deployment. For more information, see 24/7 Service Guard Overview.

You can add your Sumo Logic monitoring to Harness 24/7 Service Guard in your Harness Application Environment. For a setup overview, see 1 - Sumo Logic Connection Setup.

For more information on 24/7 Service Guard, see 24/7 Service Guard.

24/7 Service Guard Setup

To set up 24/7 Service Guard for Sumo Logic, do the following:

  1. Ensure that you have added Sumo Logic as a Harness Verification Provider, as described in Verification Provider Setup.
  2. In your Harness Application, ensure that you have added a Service, as described in Services. For 24/7 Service Guard, you do not need to add an Artifact Source to the Service, or configure its settings. You simply need to create a Service and name it. It will represent your application for 24/7 Service Guard.
  3. In your Harness Application, click Environments.
  4. In Environments, ensure that you have added an Environment for the Service you added. For steps on adding an Environment, see Environments.
  5. Click the Environment for your Service. Typically, the Environment Type is Production.
  6. In the Environment page, locate 24/7 Service Guard.
  7. In 24/7 Service Guard, click Add Service Verification, and then click Sumo Logic. The Sumo Logic dialog appears.
  8. Fill out the dialog. The dialog has the following fields.
For 24/7 Service Guard, the queries you define to collect logs are specific to the application or service you want monitored. Verification is application/service level. This is unlike Workflows, where verification is performed at the host/node/pod level.
