I wonder how many of those servers are web hosts.

There seems to be a line drawn where those that do web hosting and similar love systemd, while other server admins loath it for introducing needless complexities.

I have taken to thinking about web hosting as "uptime by machine gun". This in that they achieve uptime not by maintaining solid server configs, but by rapidly firing containers and/or VMs at the problem until it goes away.


Seems to be true since the famous "400 restarts a day is OK"


dear deity...
