Hm... I'm not understend. 

   Table 3-5. Available options for file()

   fsync() yes or no Forces an fsync() call on the destination fd after
   each write. Note: this may degrade performance seriously

Is this about system file otput ? Isn't it ?

I say about it:

   Table 3-8. List of supported global options in syslog-ng
   sync() number The number of lines buffered before written to file
