just a quick guess:

Are you sure that your 1000 requests really result in 1000 matching
lines in your logfile? I just remember syslog to log the first request
and then a line saying something like "200 identical entries skipped" if
there are too many identical log entries within a short period of time...

So this could be more related to your syslog conf than to collectd.
