props.conf time_format for source

Path Finder

Goal is to parse new events based on this source value into multiline events split each time a new date is encountered.

Currently the events are not splitting correctly based on the date, as well as the AM/PM not being discovered causing all of the morning and afternoon data to overlap in the first 12 hours of the _time field.

Try these settings.  Perhaps most important is escaping the < in a regex.

SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
TIME_PREFIX = \<
TIME_FORMAT = %d-%b-%Y %I:%M:%S o'clock %p %Z
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 40
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)\<\d+-
