- class dissect.target.loaders.log.LogLoader(path: pathlib.Path | str, parsed_path=None)#
A base class for loading a specific path and coupling it to a
Implementors of this class are responsible for mapping any type of source data to a
Target. Whether that’s to map all VMDK files from a VMX or mapping the contents of a zip file to a virtual filesystem, if it’s something that can be translated to a “disk”, “volume” or “filesystem”, you can write a loader that maps it into a target.
You can do anything you want to manipulate the
Targetobject in your
mapfunction, but generally you do one of the following:
Containerand add it to
Volumeand add it to
VirtualFilesystem, add your files into it and add it to
You don’t need to manually parse volumes or filesystems in your loader, just add the highest level object you have (e.g. a
Containerof a VMDK file) to the target. However, sometimes you need to get creative. Take a look at the
TarLoaderfor some creative examples.
