Apply Config Hours After Making Changes

Would there be a problem with making several changes to extension options (or any other changes) during the day and then logging out of the system before clicking on Apply Config. Then, after hours, logging back in to the system and then clicking on Apply Config?

I know that technically there should be no interruption in service, but I was thinking just to be safe, I would wait until after hours to apply the changes.

Not only can you do that but you can finalize it later with

/usr/sbin/fwconsole reload

either interactively with an ssh session or automatically with a cron job.

It should be noted that currently there are anecdotal reports that doing the reload from the GUI can possibly be very slow and even impactfull on your system, whereas the above suggestion using the shell seems immune to that possible bug
