Reload the conf on SIGUSR1/2

parent 754dd898
......@@ -57,6 +57,10 @@ The configuration file uses a simple format of the form
from 0 to 3. 0 is debug, 1 is info, 2 is warning, 3 is error. The
default is 0, but a more practical value for production use is 1.
The configuration can be re-read at runtime (you can for example change the
log level without having to restart biboumi) by sending SIGUSR1 or SIGUSR2
(see kill(1)) to the process.
