func ObjectPath

func ObjectPath(path string) dbus.ObjectPath

ObjectPath creates a dbus.ObjectPath using the rules that systemd uses for serializing special characters.


type Conn

type Conn struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Conn is a connection to systemds dbus endpoint.

func New

func New() (*Conn, error)

New() establishes a connection to the system bus and authenticates.

func (*Conn) DisableUnitFiles added in v0.2.0

func (c *Conn) DisableUnitFiles(files []string, runtime bool) ([]DisableUnitFileChange, error)

DisableUnitFiles() may be used to disable one or more units in the system (by removing symlinks to them from /etc or /run).

It takes a list of unit files to disable (either just file names or full absolute paths if the unit files are residing outside the usual unit search paths), and one boolean: whether the unit was enabled for runtime only (true, /run), or persistently (false, /etc).

This call returns an array with the changes made. The changes list consists of structures with three strings: the type of the change (one of symlink or unlink), the file name of the symlink and the destination of the symlink.

func (*Conn) EnableUnitFiles

func (c *Conn) EnableUnitFiles(files []string, runtime bool, force bool) (bool, []EnableUnitFileChange, error)

EnableUnitFiles() may be used to enable one or more units in the system (by creating symlinks to them in /etc or /run).

It takes a list of unit files to enable (either just file names or full absolute paths if the unit files are residing outside the usual unit search paths), and two booleans: the first controls whether the unit shall be enabled for runtime only (true, /run), or persistently (false, /etc). The second one controls whether symlinks pointing to other units shall be replaced if necessary.

This call returns one boolean and an array with the changes made. The boolean signals whether the unit files contained any enablement information (i.e. an [Install]) section. The changes list consists of structures with three strings: the type of the change (one of symlink or unlink), the file name of the symlink and the destination of the symlink.

func (*Conn) GetUnitProperties

func (c *Conn) GetUnitProperties(unit string) (map[string]interface{}, error)

GetUnitProperties takes the unit name and returns all of its dbus object properties.

func (*Conn) GetUnitProperty added in v0.2.0

func (c *Conn) GetUnitProperty(unit string, propertyName string) (*Property, error)

func (*Conn) GetUnitTypeProperties added in v0.2.0

func (c *Conn) GetUnitTypeProperties(unit string, unitType string) (map[string]interface{}, error)

GetUnitTypeProperties returns the extra properties for a unit, specific to the unit type. Valid values for unitType: Service, Socket, Target, Device, Mount, Automount, Snapshot, Timer, Swap, Path, Slice, Scope return "dbus.Error: Unknown interface" if the unitType is not the correct type of the unit

func (*Conn) GetUnitTypeProperty added in v0.2.0

func (c *Conn) GetUnitTypeProperty(unit string, unitType string, propertyName string) (*Property, error)

func (*Conn) KillUnit

func (c *Conn) KillUnit(name string, signal int32)

KillUnit takes the unit name and a UNIX signal number to send. All of the unit's processes are killed.

func (*Conn) LinkUnitFiles added in v0.3.0

func (c *Conn) LinkUnitFiles(files []string, runtime bool, force bool) ([]LinkUnitFileChange, error)

LinkUnitFiles() links unit files (that are located outside of the usual unit search paths) into the unit search path.

It takes a list of absolute paths to unit files to link and two booleans. The first boolean controls whether the unit shall be enabled for runtime only (true, /run), or persistently (false, /etc). The second controls whether symlinks pointing to other units shall be replaced if necessary.

This call returns a list of the changes made. The list consists of structures with three strings: the type of the change (one of symlink or unlink), the file name of the symlink and the destination of the symlink.

func (*Conn) ListUnits

func (c *Conn) ListUnits() ([]UnitStatus, error)

ListUnits returns an array with all currently loaded units. Note that units may be known by multiple names at the same time, and hence there might be more unit names loaded than actual units behind them.

func (*Conn) NewSubscriptionSet

func (conn *Conn) NewSubscriptionSet() *SubscriptionSet

NewSubscriptionSet returns a new subscription set.

func (*Conn) Reload

func (c *Conn) Reload() error

Reload instructs systemd to scan for and reload unit files. This is equivalent to a 'systemctl daemon-reload'.

func (*Conn) ReloadOrRestartUnit

func (c *Conn) ReloadOrRestartUnit(name string, mode string) (string, error)

ReloadOrRestart attempts a reload if the unit supports it and use a restart otherwise.

func (*Conn) ReloadOrTryRestartUnit

func (c *Conn) ReloadOrTryRestartUnit(name string, mode string) (string, error)

ReloadOrTryRestart attempts a reload if the unit supports it and use a "Try" flavored restart otherwise.

func (*Conn) ReloadUnit

func (c *Conn) ReloadUnit(name string, mode string) (string, error)

ReloadUnit reloads a unit. Reloading is done only if the unit is already running and fails otherwise.

func (*Conn) RestartUnit

func (c *Conn) RestartUnit(name string, mode string) (string, error)

RestartUnit restarts a service. If a service is restarted that isn't running it will be started.

func (*Conn) SetSubStateSubscriber

func (c *Conn) SetSubStateSubscriber(updateCh chan<- *SubStateUpdate, errCh chan<- error)

SetSubStateSubscriber writes to updateCh when any unit's substate changes. Although this writes to updateCh on every state change, the reported state may be more recent than the change that generated it (due to an unavoidable race in the systemd dbus interface). That is, this method provides a good way to keep a current view of all units' states, but is not guaranteed to show every state transition they go through. Furthermore, state changes will only be written to the channel with non-blocking writes. If updateCh is full, it attempts to write an error to errCh; if errCh is full, the error passes silently.

func (*Conn) SetUnitProperties added in v0.2.0

func (c *Conn) SetUnitProperties(name string, runtime bool, properties ...Property) error

SetUnitProperties() may be used to modify certain unit properties at runtime. Not all properties may be changed at runtime, but many resource management settings (primarily those in systemd.cgroup(5)) may. The changes are applied instantly, and stored on disk for future boots, unless runtime is true, in which case the settings only apply until the next reboot. name is the name of the unit to modify. properties are the settings to set, encoded as an array of property name and value pairs.

func (*Conn) StartTransientUnit

func (c *Conn) StartTransientUnit(name string, mode string, properties ...Property) (string, error)

StartTransientUnit() may be used to create and start a transient unit, which will be released as soon as it is not running or referenced anymore or the system is rebooted. name is the unit name including suffix, and must be unique. mode is the same as in StartUnit(), properties contains properties of the unit.

func (*Conn) StartUnit

func (c *Conn) StartUnit(name string, mode string) (string, error)

StartUnit enqeues a start job and depending jobs, if any (unless otherwise specified by the mode string).

Takes the unit to activate, plus a mode string. The mode needs to be one of replace, fail, isolate, ignore-dependencies, ignore-requirements. If "replace" the call will start the unit and its dependencies, possibly replacing already queued jobs that conflict with this. If "fail" the call will start the unit and its dependencies, but will fail if this would change an already queued job. If "isolate" the call will start the unit in question and terminate all units that aren't dependencies of it. If "ignore-dependencies" it will start a unit but ignore all its dependencies. If "ignore-requirements" it will start a unit but only ignore the requirement dependencies. It is not recommended to make use of the latter two options.

Result string: one of done, canceled, timeout, failed, dependency, skipped. done indicates successful execution of a job. canceled indicates that a job has been canceled before it finished execution. timeout indicates that the job timeout was reached. failed indicates that the job failed. dependency indicates that a job this job has been depending on failed and the job hence has been removed too. skipped indicates that a job was skipped because it didn't apply to the units current state.

func (*Conn) StopUnit

func (c *Conn) StopUnit(name string, mode string) (string, error)

StopUnit is similar to StartUnit but stops the specified unit rather than starting it.

func (*Conn) Subscribe

func (c *Conn) Subscribe() error

Subscribe sets up this connection to subscribe to all systemd dbus events. This is required before calling SubscribeUnits. When the connection closes systemd will automatically stop sending signals so there is no need to explicitly call Unsubscribe().

func (*Conn) SubscribeUnits

func (c *Conn) SubscribeUnits(interval time.Duration) (<-chan map[string]*UnitStatus, <-chan error)

Returns two unbuffered channels which will receive all changed units every interval. Deleted units are sent as nil.

func (*Conn) SubscribeUnitsCustom

func (c *Conn) SubscribeUnitsCustom(interval time.Duration, buffer int, isChanged func(*UnitStatus, *UnitStatus) bool, filterUnit func(string) bool) (<-chan map[string]*UnitStatus, <-chan error)

SubscribeUnitsCustom is like SubscribeUnits but lets you specify the buffer size of the channels, the comparison function for detecting changes and a filter function for cutting down on the noise that your channel receives.

func (*Conn) TryRestartUnit

func (c *Conn) TryRestartUnit(name string, mode string) (string, error)

TryRestartUnit is like RestartUnit, except that a service that isn't running is not affected by the restart.

func (*Conn) Unsubscribe

func (c *Conn) Unsubscribe() error

Unsubscribe this connection from systemd dbus events.
