After pushing a changed rule set to the agent, will detect need to be manually restarted?

Will the detect processes automatically start again after I push a ruleset to the agent?

Do I have to restart the detect processes after I change ruleset?

You do not need to manually restart the detect processes. A detect process exists to check the rule set and will restart detect and its groups if needed.  This process, ./perl -  vrun detectd, looks at detect.xml each minute to see if the file has changed. If changes are found, detect will be restarted as needed.

Use the Unix command ps -ef | grep detect to see all detect processes running on the system.
