It's normal on many systems for nothing to be logged there other than at boot time. The syslogd line is normal, that's supposed to show up when you clear the logs. I just cleared the logs, and saved and applied changes on a load balancer entry to force it to poll, and it did log its polls. Your system probably isn't running anything that will log there with any frequency.
