[mrtg] Memo: Christmas Wishlist for NT

Dear Santa Claus,

I and a number of MRTG users have experienced problems with getting
MRTG to re-read *.cfg files after they have been changed. This is only
when MRTG is set up to run as an NT Daemon (RunAsDaemon: yes).

There have been  a number of suggestions including using NT Task
Manager to kill the Perl.exe process.  For whatever reason, none of
these work with my setup.  NT will not let me kill the process - this
may be an NT issue but it should not be.

So for my Christmas MRTG Wish List I would like to be able to tell
MRTG to "RunAsDaemon: yes"  but also tell it to re-load the cfg file
each time (i.e. ReloadCfg: yes) - or have some way of telling the NT
Service agent to "bounce" MRTG and cause it to reload the cfg file/s.

This would make a nice Christmas or New Years present to us beleagured
NT users (don't say I should run it on Unix, I know I should but I
cannot for a number of reasons <g>).
