No there isn't something like that in OpenBSD. Learn to like it even if you don't

To stop sshd :
Code:
pkill -TERM sshd
To force sshd to reread it's configuration file:
Code:
pkill -HUP sshd

rc.d scripts are a System V Unix type thing, OpenBSD doesn't have that.

Stopping and starting "services" is done in different ways, depending on the service you want...

Now, you typically shouldn't need to kill OpenSSH... if you've made alterations to the configuration file, send SIGHUP to reload the file. (As documented in the man page.).

To terminate a process, you would either use a combination of ps(1) and kill(1), or pkill(1).

For BIND, once enabled in rc.conf, a rndc(8) key is generated at the next boot.. with that, you can monitor the status of the daemon.

Some base daemons have "ctl" utilities, Apache for example, has apachectl(8).

That's how it should be... IMHO, but I'm a little enthusiastic.

Along with the answers already posted, your best bet is to study the manpage for each & every daemon you want to run. The accuracy of OpenBSD's manpages is very important to the developers, & signficant time & effort is spend to guarantee their correctness.
