Bug Description

During commissioning and testing MAAS runs scripts and captures its data. The scripts may use commands which do not detect they are not being run in a terminal and show progress bars, counters, or spinners. These effects are captured by MAAS making the log more difficult to read. apt has a known bug[1] causing MAAS to log "Read database ... x%" anytime apt is used. The memtester script outputs a spinner making its output impossible to read.
