7. Signals

The program handles a set of signals. To send a signal to slb use the following command:

kill -signal `cat /var/run/slb.pid`

Replace ‘/var/run/slb.pid’ with the actual pathname of the PID-file, if it was set using the ‘pidfile’ configuration statement.

The ‘SIGHUP’ signal instructs the running instance of the program to restart itself. It is possible only if slb was started using its full pathname.

The signals ‘SIGTERM’, ‘SIGQUIT’, and ‘SIGINT’ cause immediate termination of the program.
