Doc Text:
.The `logging` RHEL System Role supports options `startmsg.regex` and `endmsg.regex` in files inputs With this enhancement, you can now filter log messages coming from files by using regular expressions. Options `startmsg_regex` and `endmsg_regex` are now included in the files’ input. The `startmsg_regex` represents the regular expression that matches the start part of a message, and the `endmsg_regex` represents the regular expression that matches the last part of a message. As a result, you can now filter messages based upon properties such as date-time, priority, and severity.
