Overview

The systemd packages contain systemd, a system and service manager for Linux, compatible with the SysV and LSB init scripts. It provides aggressive parallelization capabilities, uses socket and D-Bus activation for starting services, offers on-demand starting of daemons, and keeps track of processes using Linux cgroups. In addition, it supports snapshotting and restoring of the system state, maintains mount and automount points, and implements an elaborate transactional dependency-based service control logic. It can also work as a drop-in replacement for sysvinit. This update fixes multiple bugs and adds numerous enhancements. Refer to the following Red Hat Knowledgebase article for information on the most significant of these changes: https://access.redhat.com/articles/1611383 Users of systemd are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
