Can't run rsyslog as service using brew

I’m trying to install and run rsyslog using brew. I did

brew install rsyslog

sudo brew services restart rsyslog
Stopping `rsyslog`... (might take a while) 
==> Successfully stopped `rsyslog` (label: homebrew.mxcl.rsyslog)
==> Successfully started `rsyslog` (label: homebrew.mxcl.rsyslog)

However, the service does not start. In my system.log I can see that the service fails to start and brew seems to retry every 10s without success.

Mar 28 10:28:14 X com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (homebrew.mxcl.rsyslog[9242]): Service exited with abnormal code: 1
Mar 28 10:28:14 X com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (homebrew.mxcl.rsyslog): Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds.

Any idea how to help debugging this issue?
I’m running mac os x 10.14.4

Thanks in advance

Same here. running macOS 10.14.6.

I looked for /usr/local/etc/rsyslog.conf file and could not find it.

Maybe thats the reason why.
