Multiple Mulitiline Patterns?

I'm wondering if there is any way to have multiple multiline patterns. I see this post

which looks like he got something to work. I'm trying to do exactly as he was and and looking to do:

codec => multiline {
       pattern => "(%{MONTHNUM}/%{MONTHDAY}/%{YEAR}) | (%{DATESTAMP})"
      negate => true
      what => "previous"
      max_lines => 1000
      auto_flush_interval => 3

However, when I do this only the first pattern works, so only %{MONTHNUM}/%{MONTHDAY}/%{YEAR} works and DATESTAMP does not and any datestamp lines get thrown into one giant multiline. If I switch the order and have DATESTAMP | %{MONTHNUM}/%{MONTHDAY}/%{YEAR} then only datestamp will work and any MONTHNUM}/%{MONTHDAY}/%{YEAR} will get thrown into one giant multiline.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Watch out for the spaces surrounding "|". Do you really have a space before the DATESTAMP? Suggestion:


Magnus I did not try this, but it seems like it should work. I feel silly having put the spaces around the "|" before you responded I was able to solve this by using a more general pattern of "^%{NOTSPACE} ?-? ?%{TIME}" to solve all my needs.
