8.5. Reload

SIGHUP - Causes named to read named.boot and reload the database. This is useful when you have made a change to a ``primary'' data file and you want named's internal database to reflect the change. If you build BIND with the FORCED_RELOAD option, then SIGHUP also has the effect of scheduling all ``secondary'' zones for serial-number checks, which could lead to zone transfers ahead of the usual schedule. Normally serial-number compares are done only at the intervals specified in the zone's SOA record.
