Want more features in your init script? Like, say, a reliable way to figure out if any parts of your server are still running after it crashed? Or a way to determine that it has started up correctly?
You don’t want anything like these in your local init service. For such tests you have Nagios, Icinga or similiar daemons. And they can do much deeper checks, e.g. can you login into your webservice because your database backend on a different server is available.
I don’t mind if you want systemd, but don’t force it on others. There are no features in systemd that I would dump the well known sysvinit. Shade and sweet water! Stephan -- | Stephan Seitz E-Mail: email@example.com | | Public Keys: http://fsing.rootsland.net/~stse/keys.html |
