Example Configuration

The following example configuration will send logs and metrics. Default compression and max request body size will be used. Logs will be sent as JSON and metrics will be sent as Graphite and utilize the Graphite template to alter the metric names. The source host template will be used as well to override the one on the Sumo Logic HTTP logs and metrics source. Sending and persistent queues will be used as well as retry on failure.
