Date:15:07:06 22/06/2008

Hello All,

I seem to be having a problem reading the Kismet dump files. I run kismet_server in --daemon mode. I'm wondering what signal I should send to the kismet_server PID to have it shut down gracefully and save the dump file correctly. I send it a kill -SIGQUIT and I still seem to have corrupted dump files.

Is there a way to tell the kismet_server to shut down gracefully and flush it's dump files?

Or am I reading the dump files correctly?

Any hints or tips would be appreciated.
