Hello,
I just want to parse a log file. I try every solution found on forum but never work.
(Splunk 7.3.3)

Log:

<event action=....>
  <start>2020-02-22 12:49:21:596</start>
  <client .../>
  <sent ...></sent>
</event>
<event action=...>
  <start>2020-02-22 12:49:20:435</start>
  <client .../>
  <sent ...></sent>
</event>

What i want on Splunk SH:

_time               _raw
2020-02-22 13:49:21 <event action=...>
                      <start>2020-02-22 12:49:21:596</start>
                      <client .../>
                      <sent ...></sent>
                    </event>
2020-02-22 13:45:20 <event action=...>
                      <start>2020-02-22 12:49:21:596</start>
                      <client .../>
                      <sent ...></sent>
                    </event>

What i have on Splunk SH:

_time               _raw
2020-02-22 13:49:21 <event action=...>
2020-02-22 13:45:20 <event action=...>

inputs.conf on UF:

index = test
sourcetype = my_sourcetype
disabled = 0

4 props.conf tried on Indexer (based on forum's solution):

[my_sourcetype]
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)\<event
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
DATETIME_CONFIG = NONE

[my_sourcetype]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE = ^\s*\<event

[my_sourcetype]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
MUST_BREAK_AFTER = \</event\>

[my_sourcetype]
DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT
KV_MODE = xml
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)(?=\s*\<event.*?\>)   
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE_DATE = False
MUST_BREAK_AFTER = \</event\>
NO_BINARY_CHECK = 1
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
TRUNCATE = 0

props.conf on Search Head:

[my_sourcetype]
KV_MODE = xml

After each change, i reboot splunk on Idx and SH
Thanks for help
Regards

Try these props on your indexers. Keep in mind changing props.conf will not affect data that is already indexed; only new data will be affected.

[my_sourcetype]
  KV_MODE = xml
  LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)\<event 
  TIME_PREFIX = start>
  TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%d-%n %H:%M:%S:%3N

Hi richgalloway,

Yes i generate new events for each test

<event action=...>
  <start>2020-02-28 18:04:14:706</start>
  <end>2020-02-28 18:04:32:629</end>
  <client .../>
  <sent ...></sent>
 </event>

With your conf, same result, juste one line in SH:

 _time                      _raw
2020-02-28 18:04:37     <event action=...>

Here are all settings on indexer with btool, perhaps could see the problem:
