Hi,

I am trying to extract events from multiline event using multikv. Could someone please help me in configuring the multikv for these kind of events?

The approach should be breaking those events at Indextime, not at search time. You should have your sourcetype with the following parameters:

SHOULD_LINEMERGE=true
LINE_BREAKER=([\r\n]+)
NO_BINARY_CHECK=true
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE=App
TIME_FORMAT=%d/%m/%Y %H:%:%M:%S.%3N
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD=40
TRUNCATE=1000

That way your events will be well defined, check the image belowalt text

Hi Tiagofbmm,

Thanks for the details. The actual event payload is huge XML file and I had broken down that XML event and tried extracting this event content from XML. Could you please review and suggest if we can split this by multikv conf file.. Thanks in advance.. Additionally could you please suggest whether index time event breaking is good for performance than searchtime event breaking. Thanks in advance

If the XML is big you can always increase the TRUNCATE parameter to accommodate that. multikv doesn't seem to apply to what you have: every line of your data is not an event. YOur scenario is clearly dependent on proper event breaking settings like I showed you. Can you try using these:

SHOULD_LINEMERGE=true
LINE_BREAKER=([\r\n]+)
NO_BINARY_CHECK=true
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE=App
TIME_FORMAT=%d/%m/%Y %H:%:%M:%S.%3N
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD=40
TRUNCATE=100000

Hi Tiagofbmm,

Thanks for the response. Please see below sample event data that I am trying to extract the events using multikv command. I need to create one event for each chunk of data starts with "App - Error:" and Endswith "Solution: " so that I can extract the fields in subsequent stages. Kindly review and suggest configuration for multikv.conf.
