Automatically reloading the Filterset by the TrafMeter Service


Due to the fact that the main configuration of TrafMeter, or "Filterset", is stored in an XML file, an administrator can change this file manually or by using a third-party tool. To apply such changes "on the fly" without using the Administrative Console, you can create a zero-length file with the name "your_filterset.reload" in the Filterset folder. Assuming that "your_filterset" is the name of the currently loaded Filterset. For example, if the Filterset is loaded from the file "default.tmf", then the reload file would be named "default.reload". If the TrafMeter Service deletes the reload file successfully, the reload will be performed.
