How to run multiple instances?

Asked by Adam K

This changelog hints at:

"custom configuration files (passed by --config), so that multiple instances may be run"

What should be included in the custom config file? I tried a few random "indicator-sysmonitor --config <filename>" which returned "json.decoder.JSONDecodeError: Expecting value: line 1 column 1 (char 0)
ERROR:root:Reading settings failed"
