This is not possible at the moment. The dump file is opened on source
connect. events such as SIGHUP or similar things have no effect on this.

There is a related ticket in the system:

However I think thre will be little movement on this in near future (at
least without sponsoring) as it requires to find a matching sync point
in the stream when reopening to ensure the individual files are both
valid and gap less.

What you can always do is to run a little script that connects as a
client and downloads the file locally with e.g. wget. then you restart
this wget whenever you want to break the stream.

I hope that helps you a bit. Looking forward to your reply.
