KPLUG Monthly Meeting


Tony Su will speak about systemd

systemd is perhaps the biggest and most disruptive new technology adopted by Linux since its inception. This is an Introduction to systemd which describes how the multitude of underlying systems have been unified under one system removing complexities, hierarchies, improving performance and adding features to pratically all Linux distros. This is a must-see if you run or are considering running a number of distros in your network, running Linux on the far ends of scalability (eg micro embedded to enormous servers), Develop on Linux or write management scripts.

Although Fedora and openSUSE are leading the way integrating systemd functionality, Arch is not far behind and practically all distros have either already partially integrated systemd or offer it as an option.

Topics Covered:

  • Description of parts
  • Problems in current, legacy systems addressed
  • How your distro is upgrading to systemd without disruption
  • Does this mean your legacy tools need to be replaced?
  • The new journal, a "3D" replacement for the syslog
