BTW, why are you parsing diagnostic output?  They are not part of the

Not the original poster, but parsing log events is commonly done prior
to saving them in a structured data store as a transitional measure
while efforts like CEE and Project Lumberjack [1] stabilize.

For example, the popular Logstash project provides a library of
patterns for common services [2]. For users who parse FreeIPA logs,
frequent log formatting changes could be disruptive.



That's a good point. What John is talking about though are informative messages output by the client tool, not something that would end up in a log.
