Individual log entries begin and end with a '====' separator.

Since the timestamp entries are seemless across logs, finished and new log parsing is erratic.

Tried with putting following prop.conf at $SPLUNK_HOME/system/local

[source_type]
LINE_BREAKER = [=]+
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE_DATE = false
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
DATETIME_CONFIG = NONE
MUST_BREAK_AFTER = [=]+

The LINE_BREAKER attribute needs a capture group to work correctly. Try LINE_BREAKER = ([=\s]+)Command: or LINE_BREAKER = ()Command:.
