Use Guardian to Restart a Service
How can I use Guardian to restart a service?

In order to have Guardian restart the service all you need to do is create a file with the service name in the /svc directory for the server. For example:
The command above will create the /svc/httpd and Guardian will restart the webserver shortly. This could be particularly helpful when you are making changes to the service configuration. Also it is advisable to use this functionality instead of trying to manually restart the service as Guardian will do it faster anyway.
