    Hi Scott,

    The locking issue was only a problem with the 32bit version of the Collector and was only a problem on Windows.This was an issue with how the 32bit Windows libraries handled the sessions to the files.

    Sumo Logic tries to be as unobtrusive as possible and does not specifically place any locks on files. The Collector will live tail a log file and will not drop the session for a few minutes, this is to ensure it has collected everything from the file, however during the time the Collector is reading from the file any other process should continue to be able to access, update, rename, or delete the file.If you are seeing some sort of locking on files please let us know as this would be unexpected behavior.
