Interestingly, it's also the end of urpmi with both Mageia and OpenMandriva switching to dnf.
It seems rpm world entered a semi-unified state with dnf and zypper, both libsolv based and partly interoperable
If you use Zabbix to monitor your servers you may want to monitor systemd services with it especially if you have some custom services.
These simple checks were enough for me:
systemd.unit.is-active[<unit name>] # 1 if unit is active, 0 if inactive systemd.unit.is-failed[<unit name>] # 1 if unit if in failed state, 0 if not systemd.unit.is-enabled[<unit name>] # 1 if unit is enabled, 0 if not
It's very simple. Just place
userparameter_systemd.confto your zabbix config dir (usually
/etc/zabbix_agentd.conf.d) with the following content:
# checks to determine if specified unit is active, failed or enabled UserParameter=systemd.unit.is-active[*],systemctl is-active --quiet '$1' && echo 1 || echo 0 UserParameter=systemd.unit.is-failed[*],systemctl is-failed --quiet '$1' && echo 1 || echo 0 UserParameter=systemd.unit.is-enabled[*],systemctl is-enabled --quiet '$1' && echo 1 || echo 0
