> The msg=<message> also gives us a way to specific a more verbose message that is immediately available to the consumer, should they decide to parse it. Also, for all types of split-brains, there has to be a remedial action (i.e. resolving the split-brains) required by the admin. Having to monitor only one EVENT type for all split-brains would make  it easier is what I feel.
If it is one event type, then I would prefer "type" instead of msg. (type can
be gfid|file|data|meta etc). Descriptive message is not required since these
APIs are consumed programatically, free text and non uniform key names breaks
the parsing.
