Multi-Line event

Engager

Sorry complete newbie, having trouble getting my head around splitting this log into distinct event. The default processing does an adequate job but does not split it that well. Attached is a series of events from the log each should be split by the following "( ['WSRoot' : 0x9c4ff598]"
Further clarification the splunk process seems to also split on the "CreationTime" field.

This is an output currently being generated by WebSphere Message Broker. I am unaware of whether this is a custom output or a standard one from the product. Simply put I would like some help (preferably the answer) to split the events based on

Re: Multi-Line event

Builder

Drawnsle,

You can achieve this using the LINE_BREAKER property:

## props.conf
[<your_sourcetype>]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)\(\s+\[\'WSRoot\'\s+:\s+0x9c4ff598\]
TIME_PREFIX = CreationTime\s+=\s+GMTTIMESTAMP\s+\'
TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N
TZ = GMT

I have also added properties for timestamp extraction per CreationTime.
Consider adding TRUNCATE=0 if your events are longer than 10000 bytes:

TRUNCATE = <non-negative integer>
* Change the default maximum line length (in bytes).
* Although this is in bytes, line length is rounded down when this would
  otherwise land mid-character for multi-byte characters.
* Set to 0 if you never want truncation (very long lines are, however, often a sign of
  garbage data).
* Defaults to 10000 bytes.
