We are wondering about how/if Sumo locks files while reading them. How might processes writing to log files be affected by Sumo collectors reading from the log files at the same time? The only thing I've found is this document: https://support.sumologic.com/entries/23758636-Collector-locking-log-files-on-Windows-servers. We are using the 64bit version of the 64 bit collector, but this article isn't clear if the problem that was corrected by the 64bit version was that Sumo was actually locking the file in the first place or that Sumo "may not close the file for up to a couple of minutes". Can anyone point me to more specific information about how or if SumoLogic Collectors locks files?
