This in itself doesn't show the "every 30 minutes" claim. But if it really
does restart every half hour, do you perhaps have a huge amount of log
messages coming in, and have set logrotate to run more than once per day?

A crash of syslog wouldn't cause it to restart, there is no respawn
functionality that I'm aware of, so it must be something that is actively
restarting it, and the only causes I can think of off hand are reboots and
log rotating
