  • Unit file exists - a systemd unit file is shipped with SL7 for daemon(s) managed by this component
  • Starts daemon - starts a daemon, either directly (direct), by calling the relevant init script (service) or pre-started by a unit file (started by unit)
  • Reloads a daemon - triggers a daemon to reload on config changes
  • Stuff before daemon - does something before starting a daemon, eg runs a binary (binary)
  • Stuff after daemon - as above, but after starting a daemon
  • Can trigger a reboot - obvious
  • Does stuff at stop - does something on component stop
  • Run method - has a run method
  • Needs work - needs work to ship an EL7 desktop
