I am using rsyslog on rhel 7.3. I have already defined the following configs in /etc/rsyslog.conf file

$PreserveFQDN on $template Remote10514,"/data/logs/%HOSTNAME%/%HOSTNAME%-%$YEAR%%$MONTH%%$DAY%.log"

All the remote device/host name are resolvable. I notice some device logs directory are created by IP and some are FQDN. I have also included one of the hostname in the /etc/host file to troubleshoot if thats the problem.

I saw someone reporting that it is sort of buggy but wanted to confirm if there is something wrong in my config.
