need to restart bigbrother for rules changes?

This question has been answered by robert.croteau

When I change bbwarnsetup or bbwarnrules, do I need to restart bigbrother or will it detect the changed file and re-read it?

I've always done a restart but I'm not sure if it is really necessary.

I know that changes to bb-hosts seem to be dynamically re-read, just wondering about other config files.

thanks!

  • bbwarn*.cfg files are dynamically reread.

    Note that on windows bb-hosts.cfg is not reread. Under Unix, in most cases, bb-hosts is reread (bin/bbd does not reread bb-hosts)
