xml log line breaking

Contributor

Hi All,

I have an xml as below, which is not which not correctly formatted ( whole xml is on one line). I am trying to configure a props.conf file to extract the following xml in the following format.

<listing
<record
</record>
<record
</record>
<record
</record>
</listing>

The props setting looks like below. But i am not able break them to a tree structure as shown above.

Could anyone please help ?

The following props.conf is working well when the xml is put to a xml formatter to format them to a proper xml structure. But otherwise not.

[testing]
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE = <record
KV_MODE = xml
MUST_BREAK_AFTER = </record>
NO_BINARY_CHECK = 1
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
TRUNCATE = 1000000


<?xml version="1.0" ?><listing action="Services" count="71"><message message="Listing is displayed" status="success"/>  <record AuthDSId="null" AuthFormPostUrl="null" AuthFormType="null" BackupAcquirer="null" TraceExpires="null" UnicastDataQos="-1" WeakCertification="false" genId_="82497">      <list name="DirectClusterAssignments" size="0" type="ClusterConfig"/>       <list name="PChannelToClusterAssignments" size="0" type="ClusterConfig"/>       <list name="PChannelToDeviceGroupAssignments" size="0" type="DeviceGroup"/>     <list name="DeviceGroups" size="1" type="DeviceGroup">          <entry id="DeviceGroup_388"/>       </list>     <list name="Playlists" size="0" type="Playlist"/><list name="LibraryNodes" size="0" type="LnConfig"/><list name="CachingNodes" size="0" type="CnConfig"/>   </record>      <record AuthDSId="null" AuthFormPostUrl="null" Fqdn="bpm.test.com" WeakCertification="false" genId_="82899">     <list name="DsvcLocations" size="0" type="DsvcLocation"/>       <list name="ChannelMCasts" size="0" type="ChannelMCast"/>   </record>           <record AuthDSId="null" AuthFormPostUrl="null" Fqdn="mobile.test.com" WeakCertification="True" genId_="82497">      <list name="DsvcLocations" size="0" type="DsvcLocation"/>       <list name="ChannelMCasts" size="0" type="ChannelMCast"/>   </record></listing>

Re: xml log line breaking

Hi All,

I have finally figured it out used the following props. I was using the props to be used along with "REST API Modular Input" App. There was a bug in the App - line breaker was ignored, which "Damien" has fixed and provided an updated beta 06 version. (now available in splunkbase)

Thanks

Regards

KK

DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT
KV_MODE = xml
LINE_BREAKER = >(\s+)<record
NO_BINARY_CHECK = 1
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
TRUNCATE = 1000000
