very busy syslog server

I'm trying to setup a syslog server to serve a large group of servers.
For the syslog daemon, I have chosen rsyslogd, and the backend is mysql (on a different machine).
The machine has 2 Intel Xeon 2.80GHz CPUs, and 1GB of RAM, and it is running FreeBSD 6 (6.0-STABLE).
The problem is, that I see a lot of UDP packets being dropped:
390202 datagrams received
0 with incomplete header
0 with bad data length field
0 with bad checksum
6 with no checksum
0 dropped due to no socket
0 broadcast/multicast datagrams dropped due to no socket
->>> 123677 dropped due to full socket buffers
0 not for hashed pcb
133260 datagrams output
I have tried to increase net.inet.udp.recvspace, but it didn't solve the problem.
I would appreciate any hint or tips.
Thank you in advance!
