[openstack-dev] Can CONF change under me ?

If I read a CONF.some_setting, can I safely cache the result for the rest
of the process runtime ?

In other words, if the config file changes while the process is running,
does the process need a restart in order to grok those changes ?

I ask because, I want to speed up the scheduler filters, and if a filter is
badly configured, I want to just take it out of the list of filters to


Many Thanks,
