System services

This module provides low-level tools for managing system services,
using the ``service`` command. It supports both `upstart`_ services
and traditional SysV-style ``/etc/init.d/`` scripts.

.. _upstart:

from __future__ import with_statement

from fabric.api import hide, settings

from fabtools.utils import run_as_root

[docs]def is_running(service): """ Check if a service is running. :: import fabtools if fabtools.service.is_running('foo'): print "Service foo is running!" """ with settings(hide('running', 'stdout', 'stderr', 'warnings'), warn_only=True): res = run_as_root('service %(service)s status' % locals()) return res.succeeded
[docs]def start(service): """ Start a service. :: import fabtools # Start service if it is not running if not fabtools.service.is_running('foo'): fabtools.service.start('foo') """ run_as_root('service %(service)s start' % locals())
[docs]def stop(service): """ Stop a service. :: import fabtools # Stop service if it is running if fabtools.service.is_running('foo'): fabtools.service.stop('foo') """ run_as_root('service %(service)s stop' % locals())
[docs]def restart(service): """ Restart a service. :: import fabtools # Start service, or restart it if it is already running if fabtools.service.is_running('foo'): fabtools.service.restart('foo') else: fabtools.service.start('foo') """ run_as_root('service %(service)s restart' % locals())
[docs]def reload(service): """ Reload a service. :: import fabtools # Reload service fabtools.service.reload('foo') .. warning:: The service needs to support the ``reload`` operation. """ run_as_root('service %(service)s reload' % locals())
[docs]def force_reload(service): """ Force reload a service. :: import fabtools # Force reload service fabtools.service.force_reload('foo') .. warning:: The service needs to support the ``force-reload`` operation. """ run_as_root('service %(service)s force-reload' % locals())
