Thanks for that. This option didn't throw any error and seems like 
rate-limiting has stopped.

I was actually referring to this page 
http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/imuxsock.html for rate-limiting  and adding 
"$*SysSock.RateLimit.Interval* 0" was throwing error saying syslog 
couldn't understand what it means.

rsyslogd-3003: invalid or yet-unknown config file command - have you 
forgotten to load a module? [try http://www.rsyslog.com/e/3003 ]
rsyslogd: the last error occured in /etc/rsyslog.conf, line 
28:"$SysSock.RateLimit.Interval 0"

Can you please explain the different b/w these two types of rate-limits. 
Is it like, SysSock is for socket level & the one you said is global? Also,
