vCenter services need to be stopped before doing a sql database backup ?

Hello,

Which Vmware services need to be stopped before starting my SQL database backup for my vCenter 6? (vCenter 6u1 + MS SQL 2014)

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=201213... => I can see "Stop all vCenter Server services"

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=1...

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=2...

Stopping all services take a few minutes ("service-control --stop --all") ... to minimize time of interruption, i would like to know which services at the minimum must be stopped or if i can start my backup without stop any services.
