Restart Services - are these all graceful?

G'day.

Would I be right in assuming that all the services that are available for restarting via WHM (e.g. DNS, HTTP, MySQL, ftp, etc.) would be restarted gracefully ?

A search of these forums and WHM documentation doesn't appear to answer this question specifically.

AFAIK when you use the restart links, the restart scripts in /scripts/ are executed. For apache this is /scripts/restartsrv_httpd. When you look into the source code you can some stop and start code, so the scripts are probably restarted rather then reloaded/restarted (gracefully).

Also, when you use the restart link for eg. exim, you can see the whole service is shutted down first and started immediately after.
