rsyslogd uses 435M of swap memory right after restart

I have Centos 7

    # cat /etc/centos-release
    CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)

fresh rsyslogd

    # rsyslogd -version
    rsyslogd 8.36.0, compiled with:

enough free memory

    # free
                  total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
    Mem:       32741276    12244672     4931760      330064    15564844    19239180

But rsyslogd always uses about 430M of swap space, according to smem. I don't understand, why.

Can you give me some advice how to limit it's memory consumption and how to force it to use RAM instead of swap.
