I guess I wasn't being patient as I am now seeing changes. It seems like there is a delayed response in logs but I'm not sure if that's natural or if there's a way to change how often syslogs are sent to the server.
I guess I expected more that just time updates, such as a port going down because of a computer reboot. Maybe I should be patient or see if I can reboot a device connected to a switch that has my syslog configuration. I'll also edit the config just in case.
