How to edit props.conf to line break my multiline event based on timestamp?

New Member

Hi,

We are trying to break the following lines based on date/timestamp but multiline event is not working as we expected, can some one please us on this issue.

Sample log:

[02.13.2017 15:35:47.920]  INFO - [CargoHub.ShipmentPieceModule.ShipmentPieceServiceImpl.createShipmentPiece] TID[WMQJCAResourceAdapter : 4] SID[sabre:AWBReplication] RID[29004928] [<== cargo.PreLogHandler ==>  Pre Log :Shipmentpiece goods qty count 4]

we want to break the line based on timestamp sample( [02.13.2017 15:35:47.920] )

Please find below the configuration we added at props.conf on server side.

BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE = ^\[\d+\.\d+\.\d+\s+\d+:\d+:\d+\.\d+\]
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 150
NO_BINARY_CHECK = 1
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
TIME_FORMAT = %m.%d.%Y %H:%M:%S.%3Q
pulldown_type = 1

props.conf (on Indexer/Heavy Forwarder)

[YourSourceType]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE=false
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)(?=\[\d+\.\d+\.\d+\s+\d+:\d+:\d+\.\d+\])
TIME_PREFIX = ^\[
TIME_FORMAT = %m.%d.%Y %H:%M:%S.%3Q
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 23
