When looking at diffs for Juniper equipment backups, there are a lot of "false positive" diffs that consist of syslog messages to the device terminal. When logged in to a Juniper device, you can normally turn off syslog output to terminal by Esc-Q. Is it possible for Unimus to do this before issuing a "show configuration", to avoid these messages in the backup files?

Example from device backup:

1 Message from syslogd@test1 at Apr 11 02:12:36 ...
2 -
3 -
test1 inetd[1319]: /usr/sbin/sshd[95543]: exited, status 255
4 -
5 1set version...

Is there any possibility to look into this for a future version? It makes finding actual config diffs very difficult.
