Timestamp containing newline

Hi.

 

I have just been presented with a very curious timestamp format.

 

 

18-08-2020 
15:41:00,07 
No running service instances found
0 service instances are online, which is different from the expected count of 1.
18-08-2020 
15:46:00,13

0 service instances are online, which is different from the expected count of 1.

 

 

 

My first instinct is to create a timeformat = %d-%m%Y\n%H:%M:%S,%2N, but is it at all possible to mix regex with strptime() formats?

Has anybody encountered something like it, and what solution did you come up with.

Sorry, that is two events. Splunk by the timestamp containing the newline.

SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true

Just after I posted this I got thinking, and startet playing with LINE_BREAKER=([\r\n]+)\d{2}-\d{2}, that seems to be able to do the trick
