      Description

      I noticed that when I restart cfengine with a promise, reports from that execution are not sent.

      For me this is just a minor annoyance, but if I relied on reports to be reliably sent this could be a problem.

      This would be less problematic if cf-execd reloaded itself on control change https://cfengine.com/dev/issues/1885
      but there are other situations where reports on restart would be useful. Upgrades and working around memory leaks come to mind.

      Here is the policy that I used when I noticed the issue.
      <pre>
      commands:
      February.Day21::
      "/etc/init.d/cfengine3"
      comment => "Restart cf-execd so that it picks up new splay time setting",
      args => "restart",
      classes => if_ok("cfengine_restarted"),
      action => if_elapsed_day; # This will keep it from happening again,

      1. unless someone runs without locks

      reports:

      cfengine_restarted::
      "I restarted cfengine, cf-execd should have its new splay time active";
      </pre>
