You can find the pid of the running process in the repository directory in the
file `.pid`.
Signals
-------
snaprd responds to various signals.
- **INT**, **TERM**: Makes snaprd exit immediately, killing a potentially
running rsync process using the same signal.
- **USR1**: While rsync is running, wait until it finished, then exit.
Otherwise just exit.
- **USR2**: If snaprd is idle waiting for the next scheduled snapshot,
sending SIGUSR2 will cancel this waiting time and force an immediate
snapshot.
