Depending on how your data is broken out you'll probably need some regex to break out your individual fields but once that is done you can accomplish the table with something like this

| eval StartTime = case(field_name="Backup Process Started", time_field_name)
| eval FinishTime = case(field_name="Backup Process Finished", time_field_name)
| eval BackupSize = case(field_name="backup_size", size_field_name)
| transaction Date_Field maxspan=24h
| table StartTime FinishTime BackupSize

I put all of your data into fields that correspond to the columns in your table then I used transaction to group them by date.
