[collectd] How often does Collectd read resolv.conf?

Hi all,

It just happened that one of our servers had a wrong resolv.conf. We
corrected this. A few hours later we saw that we had no metrics from
Collectd from this server. So back to it and Collectd wasn't able to
resolve it's Graphite host. So even after a few hours it didn't re-read
/etc/resolv.conf. Is this a desired behaviour?
I think Collectd should once in a while re-read /etc/resolv.conf

Cheers, Shorty
