Samples of grok filter

Hello folks,

Being new to ELK, I struggled to understand from the following sample grok filter script which reads Apache log file as shown in the picture. I want to find out from this forum if there are any good samples of grok filter for me to practice and go over them.

			match=>["message",'%{IPORHOST:ClientIPAddress} %{USER:userID} %{USER:Authorization} \[%{HTTPDATE:timestamp}\] "%{WORD:verb} %{URIPATHPARAM:request} HTTP/%{NUMBER:versionnumber}" %{NUMBER:response:int} %{NUMBER:bytesint} %{QS:aaa} %{QS:agent}']
		match=>["timestamp","dd/MMM/YYYY:HH:mm:ss Z"]

Hi @jason_smith, would it help if I posted a step by step of how I approach writing a grok pattern?

This is a good post from @jsvd , and it links to a list of examples in github:

Dan, I learnt it now. First of all I wasn't good at Regular expressions. I did a course on that Regex and I started looking at Grok. It is kind of making sense now.

Thank You and Kind regards
