Enhancement suggestion: Log levels

Jan 20, 2022
I'd like to suggest adding log levels to PBS because the default is completely spamming my journal with what seems to be rather useless information?
I got only 3 clients hitting PBS which led to 21574 lines of "successfully added chunk" while the whole journal for today is just 25877 entries.
I know I can filter the log but wonder why this level of detail is shown in standard operation? Wouldn't one line, maybe per job, with "successfully added 21574 chunks" suffice?
Debugging is a different story, hence the suggestion for log levels.

%sudo journalctl --since today | grep -c "successfully added chunk"
% sudo journalctl --since today | grep -c "Jul 04"
