## 3. Choosing a Parser

When data arrive at Humio it needs to be parsed. Therefore you have to specify
which parser should be used to interpret your data. Which one your need depends
your data format. A safe bet is the `kv` (Key-Value) parser.
When data arrives at Humio it needs to be parsed therefore you have to specify
which parser should be used to interpret your data. The parser that you select
is based on the format of your data. One of the most common choices is the
`kv` (Key-Value) parser. It looks at incoming events and finds `key=value`
pairs - producing a field `key` with the value `"value"` on the stored event.

You can go to the "Parsers" menu item in the top menu of the UI to explore. But
for now, it is a good idea to stick with one of the built-in parsers for your first
experiments with Humio.

- [Configure a data shipper (Rsyslog, FileBeat, Logstash, etc.)]({{< relref "integrations/data-shippers/_index.md" >}}),

### 4.1 Extra: Custom Parsers

While Humio has build-in support for the most popular logging formats (e.g. AccessLog, JSON)
and can rip out almost anything with the `kv` <!-- TODO: Missing Link --> parser, you still
may have special needs for your custom application logs. If that is the case you need to
