Try to log the traffic by setting "Log" in firewall rule. Traffic has gone out but nothing can be seen in the Sonicwall Log. However, it can only view in Packet Monitor.

Does  Sonicwall log success traffic ?

Yes, but by default the category is disabled in GUI
Go to Log>settings
Expand Network
Expand Network Access
Enable GUI for "Packet Allowed"
