+It is possible to turn debugging output on or off on a running cfagent. This is +useful for troubleshooting the cause of hangups, or for getting debugging output
+from a cfagent launched from cfexecd.
+
+A running cfagent process that receives a SIGUSR1 will immediately begin to behave +as if it had been invoked with the '-d2' option. A SIGUSR2 will cause a running
+cfagent to run as if the '-d2' option had not been invoked.
+
+Note that this output is often quite verbose.
