>I'm dubious that JSON is "easier on machines" than CSV. Under common paradigms you are right, but if we talk of line-by-line streaming with subsequent processing, then it's a show stopper. Of course, some log aggregators have buffers for that and can do Multiline parsing on that buffer, but 1. Not all log aggregators support it 2. Building a parser which reliably detects Multiline logs AND is easy on resources is probably not something a normal person can achieve quickly.
So normally CSV is fine but for log streaming it's not the best, nor the most standard compliant way.
