systemd.snapshot


SYNOPSIS

       snapshot.snapshot


DESCRIPTION

       Snapshot units are not configured via unit configuration files.
       Nonetheless they are named similar to filenames. A unit whose name ends
       in ".snapshot" refers to a dynamic snapshot of the systemd runtime
       state.

       Snapshots are not configured on disk but created dynamically via
       systemctl snapshot (see systemctl(1) for details) or an equivalent
       command. When created, they will automatically get dependencies on the
       currently activated units. They act as saved runtime state of the
       systemd manager. Later on, the user may choose to return to the saved
       state via systemctl isolate. They are useful to roll back to a defined
       state after temporarily starting/stopping services or similar.
