I have events like this comin from Heavy forwarder

"
geo": {"continent": "NA", "country": "UK", "city": "LONDON"}, "hostname": "xxxx xxx xxxx"

I have to override the host metadata with the hostname field from the event.

my transforms.conf

[hostoverride]
SOURCE_KEY = hostname
REGEX = (.*)
DEST_KEY = MetaData:Host
FORMAT = host::$1

props.conf
[sourcetypename]
.
.
.
TRANSFORMS-hostoverride = hostoverride


In some of the events I am still getting the Heavy forwarder name. 
Thanks for the help in Advance

Regex was right, due to the size of data the hostname at the end of the events greater than 4096 character were missed and HF name was showing up.
changes I made in transforms.conf:
[hostoverride]
REGEX = hostname\"\:\s\"(.*)\"
DEST_KEY = MetaData:Host
FORMAT = host::$1

LOOKAHEAD = 10000

and it worked!!!

@prashant_kumar_  use this transforms

[hostoverride]
REGEX = hostname\"\:\"(.*)\"
DEST_KEY = MetaData:Host
FORMAT = host::$1

props.conf 

[override]
TRANSFORMS-ooo = hostoverride
INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS = json
DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)
NO_BINARY_CHECK = true
disabled = false
pulldown_type = true

my test file 

{"geo":"NA","city":"UK","country":"London","hostname":"lp5cd8213yt4"}
