Poll: How do you ship your Logs?

Recently, a few people from Sematext’s Logsene team debated about how useful the “structured” part of syslog logs (those using the RFC5424 format) is to people.  Or has shipping logs in other structured formats, like JSON, made RFC5424 irrelevant to most people?  Here is a quick poll to help us all get some insight into that.

NOTE: the question is not what your logs looks like initially when they are generated, but about what structure they have when you ship them to a centralized logging service, whether running within your organization or a logging SaaS like Logsene.

If you choose “None of the above” please do leave a comment to help spread knowledge about alternatives.
