Linux systemd can be your friend

systemd messes with your mind.  Definitely.  The easy management of /etc/init.d/ files or /etc/rc.d files is easy to grasp; easy to get the mind around a simple ordering of complex events. Replace that with systemd, and the brain wants to revolt.

But there are some upsides to this trend.  systemd is smart.  It can do a lot in parallel.  Yes, ‘systemctl enable myapp.service’ is a heck of a lot to type.  Yet, systemd gives you features like:

systemd-analyze blame

 

systemctl –order

and, one of the really cool ones:

systemd-analyze plot > plot.svg && eog plot.svg
