    Hi Laxmi,

    Logs are ingested into Sumo via Sumo collectors.  Sumo collectors are currently available for Mac, Window, and Linux.  The mainframe logs can be sent to a server running one of these OS and be ingested into Sumo.  Sumo also have hosted collectors in the cloud to which you can send the logs data.  You will notice that the main criteria of both solutions is outbound connectivity from your mainframe.

    This section in the Sumo help site goes into details the various options and ways to get data to Sumo -

    You are also able to register a free trial account on the Sumo website,, and receive help in configuring your solution. 

    Hope this helped.

    Hi Laxmi,

    I would like to inform you that Sumo Logic don't have any collectors specific for mainframe systems. If you can write the log files to a shared filesystem like NFS, then a collector on a Linux/Windows box could access the log files.

    If you have syslog on the mainframe, or a similar tool that can emit the data over a network port, we can use our installed agent on a Windows/Linux box to monitor that port.

    All of our collector types are listed here along with their download URLs.
