[Kst] Real Time streaming with kst

What are the possible options to stream an ASCII file to kst? I know of:

$ kst -y 2 -n 100 data.txt

Would read the "last" 100 lines of the file and watches it as it grows, but
if the stream is always appended to the file, wouldn't you run out of the
disk space eventually? I'm reading data from a serial port with a frequency
of 5 Hz. Is there a way to watch if the content of a file has change and
re-read the content from the beginning?

Also, can you script kst from DBus? Finally, would really appreciate it if
the documentation, especially on streaming, is updated.

Best Regards,
