This is true. And it is a lot easier then sending a SIGHUP to the
daemon. (I give much better answers after having my first cup of

You can get a list of the supported commands by using an invalid
option. I like "service <name> help" as in:

# service smb help
Usage: /etc/init.d/smb {start|stop|restart|reload|status|condrestart}

Now, one option of the service command I bet most people do not know
about is the status-all option. (service --status-all)

service --status-all runs all init scripts, in alphabetical order,
with  the  status command.

But not all scripts support the status option...
