Please share the detailed requirement with atleast 5-10 lines of sample and 4-5 lines of desired output.
Also list down the conditions to reach to the desired output.
Your query is bit ambiguous. Please do that so that someone can help you.

You can use a awk script named "test.awk" like this:
BEGIN {FS = "  "}
   if ($0 ~ /Port/) {date1=substr($1,1,index($1,"(:") - 1)}
   if ($0 ~ /Alarm/) {date2=substr($1,1,index($1,"(:") - 1)
   print date1,date2,substr($2,17,11)}

and run it :
awk -f test.awk yourfile.txt

hope that helps.

It's because you change your input. Use ur old file with "unnecessary fields" and u'll probably get the desire output ^_^
