Timestamp extraction for varying subseconds and time zones?

How do you extract a timestamp from message having

event1: Timestamp:2018-09-06T00:00:11.214000000, Timezone:UTC

event2: Timestamp:2018-09-06T00:00:11.214, Timezone:CST

where sub seconds can be milliseconds or nano seconds which vary and time zone can be any string like UTC,CST etc.

looks like splunk can handle it,

try below props.conf

[odd_timestamp]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE=true
NO_BINARY_CHECK=true
TIME_FORMAT=%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%9N, Timezone:%Z
TIME_PREFIX=^
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD=48

worked for me,
see screenshot below:

If you have multiple timestamp formats in single log file, then try configuring datetime.xml. Refer to below docs for more information.
