Hello Splunk community! I have a monitored input file. A process writes a header to a continuous log file and about a minute or so later results are appended to the log. Because the lag between the header and the results is so great, Splunk is seeing this as two separate events, where in fact it should be one multi-line event (header & results). I've tried all sorts of line breaking options in props.conf but nothing seems to work. Does anyone out there have any suggestions? I can recreate it with a simple test script with a sleep, running through a while loop.
echo "date "+%F %T" This is the header" >> $OUT
echo "Slept for 30 seconds" >> $OUT
echo "DONE" >> $OUT
