In this section we will investigate how Glassbeam’s DSL called SPL (Semiotic Parsing Language) helps in parsing multi-structured machine logs.

SPL Terminology:

Namespace:

SPL allows a log file to be treated as a hierarchical document consisting of multiple segments (or sections). Each hierarchical segment is called namespace. This allows for zeroing in on the exact section to parse specific elements from, thus localizing the scope of extracts.
