But it's very time-consuming


That is not specific. As in it takes 10 seconds? Or 10 hours?

Regexes meet specific needs but speed is not necessarily one of them. For starters a regex is always interpreted in the process. Even 'compiled' ones still end up in a form that is at best halfway to an actual compiled solution.

And your problem is in fact something that likely could be solved by real code. So that is likely something that would be faster.

But other than that it appears you might be attempting to do a regex solution for an entire file ('document') rather than doing it line by line. If you do in fact have lines which have a fixed number of timestamps then looping might provide a better solution especially if you can anchor the regex.
