Timber Parsing - Syslog

Timber recognizes the formats outlines in the Syslog 5424 and Syslog 3164 specifications. In practice these messages look like:

<34>1 2003-10-11T22:14:15.003Z su - ID47 - 'su root' failed for lonvick on /dev/pts/8

Each field is mapped to the appropriate Timber log event JSON schema field.
