To list the services running on a system using the systemd commands, we could use the below command:
Our services displayed above could have one of the below states:
- enabled : When a service is enabled, we can start it, stop it, or deactivate it so it doesn't start at boot time.
- disabled : services will not start automatically at system startup, but we can start them manually.
- static : the unit file is a dependency of other unit files that can't be started or stopped manually.
- masked : masking a service prevents it starting altogether.
