After recent issues with an Ubuntu VM I looked into support options where Canonical states:

Security and support for open source database, LMA, server and cloud-native apps

I usually know my IT abbreviations pretty well, but what does LMA stand for?

LMA Services means Logging, Monitoring and Aggregation services and currently includes: Nagios, Prometheus, Alertmanager, Grafana, Graylog and Elasticsearch.

Maybe we'll let you decide. This link states that it is Logging, Monitoring and Alerting.

    Don't you love it, when marketing departments can't decide what their fancy new acronyms actually stand for? Oh, Canonical....
