I agree with Michal. The Thread is very important for the debugging.
Obviously you can highlight what you need, but still the thread is jumping
there and back which make is less readable. It would be ok if that would be
on the third place as the log level is aligned. It makes huge difference if
you look to the logs the entire day.
A part of that I do not see any issues. The spaces are Ok as long as it is
parsable. It looks like it should not be a problem.
