As per my understanding, when we stop the sps-ctl services, it will automatically stop httpd and java along with the gateway services.
We have observed recently, while stopping sps-ctl, httpd does not stop automatically.
Since there is no service to kill httpd service independetly. Wanted to clarify on services part and its functionalities.
Access gateway 12.8 SP04
