The BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE_DATE separates events at dates so it should be no surprise that each line is a new event.

Try these settings to get the whole set into a single event.

LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)product =
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 18
TIME_FORMAT = %d/%m/%y %H:%M:%S:%3N %Z
TIME_PREFIX = ^\[
TRUNCATE = 0

Just noticed SHOULD_LINEMERGE should be "false", though it may not make much difference.
