Log parsing is possible, there is a tool called mtail that can parse logs to collect metrics. It is generally recommend to ask services directly about their current state rather than regexping logs.

This way the stats are read in a more on-demand way.

Take a look at the chronyd log files. The data is more amenable to machine reading than the chronyc output.
