What about service (sd

Post by lukeluke777 » 2021/02/09 14:51:25

I have a centos 8 host. And my provider show me all services enabled on my host.
One of them has this label which seems a "brute man smiling face",
the service label is


Do you know what could this service be?
Something strandard?
Something about SD?

What if you list units yourself:

Code: Select all

systemctl list-unit-files

Re: What about service (sd

Trying to wade through the Slough of Despond that is systemd I use the following code to find things. Anyone can feel free to copy and use it if it would be helpful:

Code: Select all

#	wtf
#	Find out what a unit is called and where it is.
#	Typical use:
#	# wtf torque
#	/usr/lib/systemd/system/pbs_mom	.service
#	/usr/lib/systemd/system/pbs_sched	.service
#	/usr/lib/systemd/system/pbs_server	.service
#	Walk all relevant trees searching within the files for all occurances
#	of the desired string.  Pass the name of all files including the
#	string on to AWK for formatting.
find /etc/systemd /usr/lib/systemd /run/systemd /lib/systemd -type f -exec grep -i "$1" {} + \
	| awk ' {
#		Strip off everything to the right of the last colon, then look
#		for the last full stop.  The type is everything to the right
#		of that (and remove any further colons), the path is that to
#		the left.  Print the results tab-separated.
		sub( ":[^:]*$", "" )
		match( $0, ".[^.]*$" )
		type = substr( $0, RSTART )
		sub( ":.*$", "", type )
		path = substr( $0, 1, RSTART-1 )
		printf( "%s\t%s\n", path, type)
	} ' \
	| sort -u
#	Sort and remove duplicates.
