           Summary: "Watching" the config file
           Product: logback-core
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P1
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: logback-dev at qos.ch
        ReportedBy: tgraham at concordenergy.com

I build server applications and when something goes wrong, I need to be able to
enable logging and have the application notice the change without a restart. 
My application have no gui, so manually "poking" the application is awkward and

Note that I disagree with the suggestion to check if the file has changed on
each log statement.  My application's performance goals are measured in
microseconds (time to respond to a message by sending another message), any
additional latency is a big problem for me.  I'd like to be able to configure
the frequency of checking the file, but it isn't super important.  

Ideally, I'd like to be able to specify that the config file should be watched
IN the config file, rather than programatically.
