Systemd restart policy

sometimes services die. sometimes there is not a better option because of the situatuion that you are in, and you just need to wait it out and then restart the service… I know it isn’t ideal and that there should be better ways around having to do this but hey ¯_(ツ)_/¯

[Service]
Type=simple
Restart=always
RestartSec=3
ExecStart=/path/to/script

In my case I needed to wait it out and restart the service 2 hours after it died. because the process was filling up a hdd and the only option was to let the hdd drain, because the downstream process is the bottle neck. two hours of seconds equals 7200 seconds. yey

watch

sometimes watching a command is super useful lets watch the disk space in MB for root every 30 seconds

watch -n 30 free -m /
