Example to drop events that do not contain $LOG$:

prop.conf

 [source_event]
 TRUNCATE = 15000
 TRANSFORMS-filter = event_drop,event_take

transforms.conf

[event_drop]
REGEX = .
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

[event_take]
REGEX = \$\$LOGS\$\$
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = indexQueue 

Hope it help
