That's fine, I am just trying to accomplish connection draining. So if I add
autoreload=yes to my ldirectord.cf ldirectord will keep checking for changes?
How often does this check occur?
So to do what I need it would just be add autoreload=yes to my ldirectord.cd?
Then when I want to take a server offline edit that file and it will change it
on its own, and when I want to bring it back up edit the file again?
Thanks for your help.

You can make ldirectord do an automatic reload using the "autoreload"
option in the config file.
You could, therefore, change the weight of a realserver to zero in
ldirectord.cf, and it'll get set to 0. To unpick that, give it a
Note that if the weight is set to zero, that will only affect *new*
connections to that server. Existing connections will continue
(regardless of persistence). See the ldirectord perldoc pages for more
details on how to work around this (hint: quiescent).
