How to extract string from a position until the end of line?

New Member

I have lines like this:

[2011/02/11@10:33:13.978+0100] P-18679      T-0     I Usr     2: (49)    SYSTEM ERROR: Memory violation.

How can I extract the string beginning with "Memory viol" till the end of line? The string is one line only, but may be much longer with any characters.

Your regex will look like this

| rex field=_raw "(?<myfield>Memory viol.*)$"

or you might prefer

| rex field=_raw "SYSTEM ERROR:\s+(?<myfield>.*)$"

Both of these assume that there will never be any fields after the system error. The $ at the end is a regex anchor for "the end of the field we are searching"
