    The systemd System and Service Manager

    Systemd uses a cgroup to track the processes started by each connection, which makes sense. However, in 2016, Systemd changed the default value of KillUserProcesses to yes. As a result, when an SSH connection is dropped, the entire cgroup is sent SIGTERM instead of being sent SIGHUP. The only reason that this this didn't impact most users is because distro maintainers stepped in and overrode the systemd default to keep KillUserProcesses=no.

  • kanagawa.nvim

    NeoVim dark colorscheme inspired by the colors of the famous painting by Katsushika Hokusai.

    I've recently learned to love Kanagawa and now use it everywhere.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • tmux

    tmux source code

    There was also a huge amount of flak because systemd started raising bug reports (e.g. tmux github issue and Hacker News discussion) saying that because systemd changed to a completely unreasonable default, everybody else should now update to the blessed and systemd-approved method for having persistent processes. And this all arose because some GNOME processes had inappropriately started using SIGHUP to indicate refreshing of resources instead of a HangUP, which led to GNOME failing to respond and propagate to children the actual SIGHUP being sent, which led to systemd developers deciding that the best way to fix that was by using the user-process groups to send SIGTERM instead of SIGHUP.
