[smokeping-users] How can I make smokeping re-read its configuration?

Hi. I'm now trying to use smokeping as external probe module
for custom network monitoring system, and looking for a way
to make smokeping re-read its configuration without affecting
ongoing probe session.
I first thought it'll handle SIGUP as a trigger like other
UNIX daemons, but it seems not. I can't just do "smokeping --restart"
as that will interrupt ongoing probe session, losing data.
I considered running it from cron, but then, smokeping won't
run probes in parallel.

Is there any good way to accomplish this?
