Data Source is a Syslog file

Syslog is a standard for sending and receiving notification messages–in a particular format–from various network devices. The messages include time stamps, event messages, severity, host IP addresses, diagnostics and more. In terms of its built-in severity level, it can communicate a range between level 0, an Emergency, level 5, a Warning, System Unstable, critical and level 6 and 7 which are Informational and Debugging.

Here is a simple Syslog example:

Syslog is just an Utf8 text file with LF as the end of line delimiter. Visual Importer ETL can read simple Syslog files for more complex Advanced ETL Processor text reader is recommended.
