Description

Hi, i need to reload some configurations of suricata.yaml like rulesets but without stopping Suricata and start it again. Is it possible to do a sighup restart like the one implemented in snort? That way, instead of restarting the proccess, it is only necessary to send a: kill -HUP $(pidof suricata) command to reload some settings.
