update documentation to indicate what happens when logfiles rotate.

Issue #5 new
Ben Hartshorne
repo owner created an issue

when logfiles rotate, any unread data in the old logfile is skipped.

i.e. ganglia-logtailer is invoked and logfile is read to position X logfile grows to position Y logfile is rotated new logfile grows to position A * ganglia-logtailer is invoked - what happens?

The data from the new logfile to position A is correctly read, but the data from position X to the end of the old file (position Y) is silently ignored.

It may be that using logtail2 instead of logtail will make this better.
