Note: Also the timing is not sequential, after 15:36:38 it shows 15:36:11. See hint above.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.5

How reproducible: Unsure.

Steps to Reproduce: Unsure.

Actual results:
Unnecessary logs.

Expected results:
Sequential logs and no redundant information that floods the logs.

Additional info:
Customer case will be linked.
