After you access a log source to Log Service, Log Service starts to collect logs in real time and allows you to consume and ship logs in the console or by using SDKs/APIs. Log Service can ship logs collected to LogHub to Alibaba Cloud storage products such as Object  Storage Service (OSS) and Table Store in real time. You can configure to ship logs in the console and LogShipper provides a complete status API and automatic retry function.
