hareboot on 5300 switch

Would someone explain to me what happens to switch services (nameserver, fabric login,controller, mgmt,time) when the firmeware download  issues a hareboot?   Exactly what does the hareboot do?   I know that fabric traffic thru the ASICs is supposed to continue without interruption so host connectivity remains unaffective.
