Lightweight crate for interacting with systemd.

This crate can be used to send service readiness or state change notifications to systemd or compatible service managers. It doesn’t offer the full functionality of libsystemd, but is pure-Rust and has no dependencies.

For bindings to the native libsystemd library, see the systemd crate. For a more complete Rust reimplementation of libsystemd API, see the libsystemd crate.


let _ = sd_notify::notify(true, &[NotifyState::Ready]);


Daemon notification for the service manager.


Checks whether the system has been booted by systemd.

Checks for file descriptors passed by the service manager for socket activation.

Sends the service manager a list of state changes.

Asks the service manager for enabled watchdog.
