Hello,
I would recommend TCP in order to net loose any logs.
If some logs come from an insecure network like a DMZ I would use TLS (over TCP), but if hosts are in the same LAN as Graylog, TLS is quite useless.
If you have big firewalls which produce many logs (over than 2000 events per second) you could use UDP to not sature your network.
