I was just dealing with this behavior. I was logging to a local rsyslog 
and rsyslog was just writing to a file on a local ssd (unsynced).

It's a ton of log.  But meh.

I disabled syslog entirely and enabled log_stderror = yes

Then I just captured stdout+stderr via multilog and write it to a file 
on the disk.  The problem went away.

I think there is some huge overhead in the way kam packages up the log 
and sends it out to syslog.
