[Spread-users] spread.conf updateing

For easy distribution of the updated .conf files you could use a shared 
NFS mount or chron'ed rsync.

If you are using Spread 4, then spmonitor has a command that tells all the 
daemons to reload their configuration file.  The daemons take appropriate 
action based on the new and old configurations (e.g. - commit suicide). 
Read the DynamicConfiguration.txt file in the docs folder for more 

If you are still using Spread 3, then I'd advise upgrading to Spread 4.
