Use this option when your event contains unstructured data like a system log file

The delimiters method is designed for structured event data: data from files with headers, where all of the fields in the events are separated by a common delimiter, such as a comma or space. You select a sample event, identify the delimiter, and then rename the fields that the field extractor finds. data that resides in a file that has headers and fields separated by specific characters.

Here it is explained in detail:
