LEDE system is composed of many different programs running all the time called daemons or services.
The default ones are already set up in a standard installation, but you may want to change their configuration or add new ones with packages.

Technically speaking, the
service command is just a wrapper for initscripts found in /etc/init.d.
Click on System, then on Startup to land in the page listing all the available services and buttons to execute actions.
The default actions supported by most services are:
|start||Start the service|
|stop||Stop the service|
|restart||Restart the service|
|reload||Reload configuration files (or restart if that fails)|
|enable||Enable service autostart|
|disable||Disable service autostart|
