Part V Services

  • 38 Service management with YaST
  • YaST provides a service manager for controlling the default system target, services, displaying service status, and reading the log file. New in SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 15 SP5 is YaST support for systemd socket-based services activation, which configures services to start on demand.

  • 39 Time synchronization with NTP
  • The NTP (network time protocol) mechanism is a protocol for synchronizing the system time over the network. First, a machine can obtain the time from a server that is a reliable time source. Second, a machine can itself act as a time source for other computers in the network. The goal is twofold—maintaining the absolute time and synchronizing the system time of all machines within a network.
