For example if I had two service files that ran as
type=forking that start two different java applications and then two service files that run as type=simple running different applications, is there a way to run another service file that would start/stop the other four but the other four can still be used independently?
dataingest-type1.service dataingest-type2.service different-dataingest.type3.service different-dataingest.type4.service
All run properly as separate services under systemd.
Could a service, like
dataingest.service, start/stop the other four?
Also if one of the other services went down and the
dataingest.service was run again it should start the service again. (basically I tried making a script that runs
systemctl start <list of services> and set it up as a service, however if one of the services stops and the service start is run again it does not run the script as it thinks the service is running.)
dataingest.service looked like this:
[Unit] Description=Stuff blah blah Requires=network.target After=network.target [Service] Type=oneshot ExecStart=/path/to/little/script.sh start ExecStop=/path/to/little/script.sh stop RemainAfterExit=true [install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
The bash script just does one job!
#/bin/bash /bin/systemctl $1 dataingest-type1.service dataingest-type2.service different-dataingest.type3.service different-dataingest.type4.service
Obviously if there is a better method.....
