Question minilogd hogs my application ports when restarted syslog service.

minilogd hogs my application ports(2050/2052/2054) when restarted syslog service, causing my application throwing error port already in use (Could not bind to specified port (error 98 Address already in use))

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2244/minilogd
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2244/minilogd
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 2244/minilogd

when syslog service is stopped or start minilogd automatically starts.

Is there way to disable minilogd in system or untie with syslog deamon service

I have to reboot or pkill minilogd in order to relinquish the ports back from minilogd.

Which distro you are using? Which init system you are using? Like sysvinit, openrc, systemd, ec.
