Hello,

I have a complex data source (sample events given below).  Is there any way I can write TIME_PREFIX and TIME_FORMAT for this data source? Thank you so much, greatly appreciated.

TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%3N  that's the easy part.

The TIME_PREFIX setting will just be some number of spaces.  Don't try to describe each event from beginning to timestamp.  A simple TIME_PREFIX = \s+ should do.

You should also set MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD to a high enough value to find the timestamp at the end of the longest event.
