      Description

      Looking at this url
      https://docs.puppet.com/puppetserver/latest/config_file_logbackxml.html
      It says I can update the logback.xml and the changes should get pickedup without restart...
      "Puppet Server picks up changes to logback.xml at runtime, so while you can restart the puppetserver service for changes to take effect, they should also take effect after a minute or so."
      I changed root level to trace (from info). I gave it plenty of time... (hours actually). And did this kind of restart to force it to do something interesting (and generate some log data)
      kill -HUP `pgrep -f puppet-server`
      new info in the log, but no debug in the log.
      Then I did this kind of restart
      service pe-puppetserver restart
      Finally I got debug info in the log.
      I am assuming this is a doc bug... though it could theoretically be a code bug.
