Last updated on 13 June, 2023

Disclaimer: The LogSource LM LogicModule is currently in open Beta.

LogSource is a LogicModule that provides templates to help you enable LM Logs and configure log data collection and forwarding. LogSource contains details about which logs to get and where to get them, and which fields should be considered for parsing. LogSource is available for common sources of log data.


The Kubernetes Pods LogSource type uses the LM Collector. When using the LM Collector with LogSource, the LM Collectors installed in your infrastructure must be version EA 31.200 or later. For information on how to upgrade a collector, see Managing Collectors.
