StreamLab sources are files (line, CSV, JSON, XML) streams, tables, log files, web feeds, and views. They capture data from sensors, message buses, network feeds, applications, databases, and other sources. You can parse local log files--files reachable from s-Server--through StreamLab. Most data sources will need to be configured through s-Server. For more information on configuring these sources, please see the Integration Guide.

You can add a range of different sources, including:

Adding a Line Source
Adding a CSV Source
Adding a JSON Source
Adding an XML Source
Adding a Protobuf Source
Adding a Discovery Source
Adding a Local Log File Source
Adding an External Table Source
Adding a Web Feed Source
Adding a WebSocket Source
Adding a Stream Source
Adding a Table Source

To add a source, you drag it from the left hand column into the middle column.

Once you have added the source, you click it to configure it. You can delete sources by clicking the circle in its upper right corner. You can throttle sources if data is coming in too fast for StreamLab to process.
