I want to reload my configuration (or parts of my configuration) and from what I understand the way to do this is to restart the arbiter.

When I do this my multisite pops up all the alerts I have acknowledged or downtimes I have set. I want to make these acks or downs persistent across restarts . Is it possible ?

In the log when I ack I get :

EXTERNAL COMMAND: [1371024832] ACKNOWLEDGE_SVC_PROBLEM;host;Check something;2;1;1;arthur;ok
