Upstart Operations

Manage upstart services.

upstart.service

Manage the state of upstart managed services.

upstart.service(service, running=True, restarted=False, reloaded=False, command=None, enabled=None)
  • service: name of the service to manage

  • running: whether the service should be running

  • restarted: whether the service should be restarted

  • reloaded: whether the service should be reloaded

  • command: custom command to pass like: /etc/rc.d/<service> <command>

  • enabled: whether this service should be enabled/disabled on boot

Enabling/disabling services:

Upstart jobs define runlevels in their config files - as such there is no way to edit/list these without fiddling with the config. So pyinfra simply manages the existence of a /etc/init/<service>.override file, and sets its content to “manual” to disable automatic start of services.
