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 Log Files LogSource type uses the LM OpenTelemetry Collector (LM OTEL Collector) to forward traces from your instrumented applications to the LM platform. For more information see OpenTelemetry Collector for LogicMonitor Overview.
The following describes configuration details specific to the Log Files type of LogSource. For general information on how to add a LogSource, see Configuring a LogSource.
Provide the path name for the log file in XML format in the Log File Path field (required).
You can add filters to include resources of certain types, for example an application. The output matching the filter criteria will be forwarded to the log ingestion process.
|Attributes||Comparison operator||Value example|
|Message||RegexMatch, RegexNotMatch.||Regular expression|
You can configure Log Fields (tags) to send additional metadata with the logs.
|Method||Key example||Value example||Description|
|Dynamic(REGEX)||“Host”||“host=*”||The query will run on the message field.|
