I am having problems getting the line breaking to work. The below events are showing as one event with the below set in my Props.conf file which is installed on the Indexers.

Feb 18 08:11:04 10.10.10.10 sshd[2910906]: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for user@domain from 10.10.10.10 port 54258 ssh2

[VMware:ESXi]
TIME_PREFIX = ^
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 15
TZ = CT
KV_MODE = none
ANNOTATE_PUNCT = false
TIME_FORMAT = %b %d %H:%M:%S
LINE_BREAKER = ([\n]+)\w{3}\s.\w\s\w{2}:\w{2}:\w{2}
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = False
TRUNCATE = 750

Any idea why the line breaking is not working?

Are you sure the line separator is right? Try LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)\w{3}\s.\w\s\w{2}:\w{2}:\w{2}

Looks like I was missing the \r for the carriage return, odd because it had been working for a long time, I wonder if VMware changed their log format in 6.5+ of ESXi. Anyhow, thanks for noticing that, works normal again.
