Overnight notifications of services stopping/starting

I'm running a new ZCS server 8.0.6 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit. Everything seems to be working fine but I am receiving emails for the last two days overnight notifying me of services going from a stop state to a running state. This happens overnight but also throughout the day apparently too.
Jan 10 09:23:04 mail zmconfigd[3587]: Service status change: mail.ourdomain.com stats changed from stopped to running


I don't have the server set to reboot or anything going on that I know of that would cause the services to stop/restart.
Is there some sort of clean-up process the server undergoes nightly that I should be aware of?
I have tons of free memory/resource and looking at performance graphs nothing spikes during these notifications of service restarts. The only thing I can think of is having ZeXtras installed and possibly it's restarting the services overnight to try and do a scan?
Any thoughts on this? I'm coming from a 7.2.0 server and never have seen this type of behavior.

Update:
I haven't received any more of these notifications until today when I restarted Zimbra to test an issue with GAL.
Now even though zmcontrol status shows all the services as running and the Zimbra Admin GUI shows all services running I'm continuously receiving random service stop/running notifications. The messages are timestamped as 12:08pm yet I am receiving these to the admin mailbox at 1:01pm

Jan 18 12:08:15 mail zmconfigd[29067]: Service status change: mail.domain.com snmp changed from stopped to running

Jan 18 12:08:15 mail zmconfigd[29067]: Service status change: mail.domain.com spell changed from stopped to running

Jan 18 12:08:16 mail zmconfigd[29067]: Service status change: mail.domain.com stats changed from stopped to running

Everything is still running smooth and there's no apparent service interruptions. These just started and are continuing after I manually stopped/started ZCS using zmcontrol.
Our server is not down and mail is being delivered fine, I'm just curious about these error messages. I also searched for watchdog in the /var/log/zimbra.log and here's what I saw:
Jan 18 12:07:12 mail zmconfigd[29067]: Executed: /opt/zimbra/bin/zmswatchctl status norewrite returned 1 (25 - 13) (0.03 sec)

I have the same problem, and this start to happen after I restarted the server. Do you have encountered a solution, or maybe a cause for this problem ?

I am facing the same problem. Did someone find a cause for the stop/start thing? And most important, how to fix this?
Thanks

I am on 8.0.7 and have received these for quite some time, at varying times of the day and night, and on previous versions. Inspection of log files doesnt indicate anything happening at the time, so I have no idea where these are coming from. The zimbra services are actually running at the time and dont restart, or my users would experience downtime which is not occuring.
