Getting Data In

breaking lines before a regex

New Member

We have a tcp input that is merginging lines when they come in too fast.

I have (inputs)

[tcp://5140]
connection_host = dns
sourcetype=apigee
source=tcp:5140
index=apigee

I tried putting into props.conf the following info:

[apigee]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false

But this doesn't seem to work.

Is there a way to force this to always break on newlines - alternately, I could regex to break BEFORE the <11>?

here is an example that is munged:

<11> : [Alert.CRIT] : APIGEE : service = Nike_Plus, path = /me/sport/activities/NPLUSBASKETBALL, target_path=/api/me/sport/activities/NPLUSBASKETBALL, client_id = 080a157bac0b57fd4a05073635652a4c,  forwarded_for_ip = 72.37.244.124, response_code = 500, total_response_time = 147, target_response_time = 52, rate_limit_exceed = false, response_cache_hit = false, client_request_start_time_stamp = 1375852510996, client_request_end_time_stamp = 1375852510997, target_request_start_time_stamp = 1375852511090, target_request_end_time_stamp = 1375852511090,  client_response_time_stamp = 1375852511143, client_response_end_time_stamp = 1375852511143, target_response_start_timestamp = 1375852511142, target_response_end_timestamp = 1375852511142
