We changed UseLegacySyslogFormat as No and then log size not changed. How do we add the changed dbparm to the props.conf? as text or whatelse??

I can see above sample you paste is multiple messages (with msg present correctly in 1st message), and event starting at YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss (eg 2017-09-08T15:30:51Z) but not on \r\n . So ensure your props.conf have correct time_format so it break on time rather on new-line.

Something like below would do

[yoursourcetype]
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 30
NO_BINARY_CHECK = true
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S
TIME_PREFIX = ^

Or try ( i haven't tried it before)
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE_DATE

A more detailed set of examples/documentation in here
