External Syslog Formatting is used to format syslog files so that they can be parsed by LX correctly. External syslog servers usually append 4 words to each line of the syslog file. Those could be the host name and a timestamp. The Line Prefix Split Count setting must be set prior to opening the external syslog file with LX. This feature is explained in more details in section LX 1.0 - Working with Syslogs from External Servers.
Some syslog servers, such as syslogd, use hexadecimal line breaks. Since the SIP messages are received in a single line, the syslog server adds either
