We have absolutely no problems whatsoever with rsyslogd here.

It runs on our FreeBSD firewall boxes and logs both to local files and
a remote server running rsyslogd on debian.



Additionally and in reply to your need to track what happens on your
network, I very highly recommend Observium which we have been running
for over 18 months now and which I use on an almost daily basis.

The icing on the cake is that you'll be able to export your logs to
Observium directly.
