Hello you can use that in props.conf,

[ __auto__learned__ ]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE=true
NO_BINARY_CHECK=true
TIME_FORMAT=%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S
TIME_PREFIX=\w{3}\s

Hi Tiskar,

Thanks for your time. May I know what's the use of SHOULD_LINEMERGE and NO_BINARY_CHECK.
I have gone through the splunk documents but unable to understand them. Can you please give me some examples to understand.

Hi,
Yes, A binary file is a file whose content must be interpreted by a program or a hardware processor that understands in advance exactly how it is formatted LIKE file.exe.
So When set NO_BINARY_CHECK to true, Splunk processes binary files.
