Legacy daemons with dynamic logging levels

I'd like to not have to cycle daemons/services ever again in order to enable higher (or lower) verbosity logging. It's bad enough doing this on a Media Server but having to take down the entire Master just to capture logs has a huge impact on our customer SLAs. The legacy daemons should be smart enough by this point to be sent the equivalent of a HUP and modify their log level accordingly.

The only log you are required to restart services is bprd.  For the rest, you can run the following instead of restarting services.

bin/admincmd/bprdreq -rereadconfig

If that was the only one that had to get cycled, I'd just run "bprdreq -terminate" and then restart it. =) But it seems like every time I call in with an issue Support tells me I need to cycle daemons to enable a more verbose log.

So either it's still an issue, or their script is in need of an update. Thoughts on which ?
