Support for Type=simple startup method in systemd for Connect Direct
The systemd is the default system manager on RHEL 8. Connect Direct should support service startup through systemd using Type=simple startup method.
User can use Type=forking with external (custom) startup script but this requires to create additional startup script and dependencies. Software should support standard Type=simple systemd method for both startup and stop actions without a need of creating additional startup scripts.
Currently Type=simple does not work properly for Connect Direct because the initial PID changes to the child PID during the startup (daemonizes itself) which causes that systemd does not properly report service status even while using PIDFile feature in systemd.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
This will allow to use default systemd system manager on RHEL 8 without a need of creating additional startup scripts and dependencies.
