Tutorial: Useful systemd Functionalities Without systemd - Bartosz Golaszewski, BayLibre

Despite all the criticism that systemd receives, its primary features - parallel service start-up, socket activation and process supervision - proved to be very effective at reducing boot times and improving security of one of the embedded projects developed at BayLibre. At the same time, the many dependencies (glibc, dbus etc.) and greater size put a question mark over its usefulness in systems designed with small memory footprint in mind. This presentation will focus on using standard and well-known linux utilities to generate small and robust, busybox-based embedded systems that offer, among other things, parallel service start-up and process supervision with cgroups support without systemd or dbus. The research is based on the boot time improvements for an embedded project with multiple services and Qt-based front-end on which buildroot-generated busybox init.d scripts were too slow.
