There is no reason to change segmenters.conf because it should already be segmenting along your data elements because the graves will create segment breaks (being that they are punctuation marks). You should be able to use any of the RegEx-based options for field extractions with no problems. For example, you can use rex like this:

... | rex field=raw "(?<field1>[^`]+)`(?<field2>[^`]+)`(?<field3>[^`]+)`(?<field5>[^`]+)`"

what i would do is to format the log before forwarding to splunk. even you can successfully submit it , you will face trouble when querying.
