[CentOS] UC OT: Rewrite part of a message with rsyslog

Use AWK:

{ print $1, $2, $3, $4, substr($0, index( $0, ">") } 

AWK will split the line up on white space, so printing $1, $2, $3, $4
will give you
"27April2012 10:33:44 data" single spaced.  The substr
expression will
return the rest of the input line ($0) unchanged from the right arrow.

Subject: [CentOS] OT: Rewrite part of a message with rsyslog

Hi all,

 Sorry for the off-topic, but I have not found how to do this. I have
installed a centos6 server to act as a syslog receiver. I need to
rewrite all messages that comes from one server. For example a part of
the message is:

"27April2012 10:33:44 data >". Sometimes between 27April2012
and 10:33:44 comes with one white space, sometimes with two, etc. I need
to normalize this log to use only one white space between all fileds
until ">" character.

 Somebody knows how can I do this??
