Add Data to Splunk

Builder

What is the difference between Choose a Data Type and Choose a Data Source.

I want to monitor only directories that contains some log file and log format is simple text.

If there is no difference then why there are two option to add data and id there is difference then what is the difference?

Thanks

There is no difference for the file monitoring. The data types may require additional apps or add-ons for the data collection so they make suggestions to help you. The data sources are generic based on the method to collect.

Thanks for your quick reply.
better to remove this from one location, for me there is no difference in functionality and UI point of view.
