Can you reproduce the problem without LVM?

So it doesn't happen every time, and it may be power cycle related.
What is your "local disk"?

You didn't look past the initial error, did you? The file is only
482280 lines long, and 482200 lines of that are decoded log data....

I really need the raw log data, not the parsed output. The logprint
command to do that is "-C <file>", not "-c".

Given that it's generated by the logprint application, I'd expect it
to be identical.

How did you get a default of 8 AGs? That seems wrong.  What version
of mkfs.xfs are you using?
