Yes.  Use spmonitor to instruct your daemons to exit.  We also have a
stand-alone tool made by stripping out some of the monitor code that
can be used to send a single command of that sort, suitable for
scripting, but I don't think it's public anywhere.  If you need it,
let me know, and I'll try to get you the source code.
