DataPower - Remote syslog server sees mal-formed records sent by DataPower

Remote syslog server (logstash) is reporting that "Line feed" (LF) characters in the tcp packets for these log messages where the logs are truncated
The 0a translates to ASCII octet value below 32 and it's being interpreted as the end of message.

The latest RFC 5424, states:

"The syslog application SHOULD avoid octet values below 32 (the traditional US-ASCII control character range except DEL). These values are legal, but a syslog application MAY modify these characters upon reception. For example, it might change them into an escape sequence (e.g., value 0 may be changed to "\0"). A syslog application SHOULD NOT modify any other octet values."

We need DataPower to follow the "SHOULD" requirements in the RFC.
