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 0 127.0.0.1:2050 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2244/minilogd
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:2052 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2244/minilogd
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:2054 0.0.0.0:* 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.

Odd... I've never even heard of minilogd before... But, searching around, it's apparently something added in later RHEL/CentOS releases of initscripts, which is basically a lightweight replacement for syslogd which is supposed to just hold onto incoming messages in memory until the real syslogd starts up, then hand them over to it and exit... I have no clue why it would be listening on any TCP ports, though! Based on code I can find online for it, it sure looks to me like it only opens the standard syslog "/dev/log" Unix domain socket... And, it's only supposed to be running if the real syslogd is NOT running... So, I have no idea WTF is going on with your system!
