I tend to agree. I dealt with this problem in the past and found that
what I really needed was a just a copy (or partial copy) of the log file
itself. So give me something that just lets me download the file. Then
I can throw it into my favorite log file analyzer and deal with it that
way. If we tried to embed our own analyzer into the console we'd never
finish meeting all our customer's requirements.
Even if we end up writing a lot of log analysis stuff someday, there's
always going to be a solid use case for just providing the file or
chunks thereof. So do that first.

be honest I wouldn't find that very useful. To me if I'm looking for logs I want
to see all logs, but that's not always so easy. Like the syslog-handler which
doesn't log to a file so there is no way to read those messages back.

information like only see error messages or only see warning messages. To solve this I
have considered creating a JSON formatter so the results could be queried, but I don't
think it should be a default which would mean it's not reliable for the console to
assume it's getting back JSON.

these might be possible, but I really need to understand the needs before I can explore
more in depth what the best option would be.
