Description
It can be a case when syslog has been masking some specific type of logs forwarded from FortiGate.
Therefore diagnosis to verify whether problem is not related to FortiGate configuration can proof the point.


Solution
Packet capture of generated various logs.

Start sniffer on port 514 and generate various logs


Then run capture and issue command to generate logs sample :
# diagnose log test ( output may vary depending on the FortiOS version )
