Christoph Doerbeck's annual talk and demo


One of the most significant updates to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (and most other Linux distros by now) is the adoption of systemd, which gives admins and users a host of new exciting tools and functionality.

In this session, you'll learn about systemd and how to get the most out of it including
  • How SysV init commands translate in systemd
  • Converting legacy init scripts
  • Customizing service unit files
  • Resource allocation via cgroups
and much more.
