Systemd: beyond the politics to the practical

Saturday, Nov 21st
2:00pm to 2:40pm
Palm 4

This presentation will avoid the debate around whether systemd is a good or bad implementation and concentrate on how it is implemented and used within the Red Hat family of Linux distributions (Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS).

Topics will include:

- basic overview
- differences from previous init systems
- design goals
- process enablement, start and stop
- post startup process management
- advanced features such as cgroup integration
