DH_SYSTEMD_START(1)                Debhelper               DH_SYSTEMD_START(1)

NAME
       dh_systemd_start - start/stop/restart systemd unit files

SYNOPSIS
       dh_systemd_start [debhelperoptions] [--restart-after-upgrade]
       [--no-stop-on-upgrade] [unitfile...]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_systemd_start is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       starting/stopping or restarting systemd unit files in case no
       corresponding sysv init script is available.

       As with dh_installinit, the unit file is stopped before upgrades and
       started afterwards (unless --restart-after-upgrade is specified, in
       which case it will only be restarted after the upgrade).  This logic is
       not used when there is a corresponding SysV init script because
       invoke-rc.d performs the stop/start/restart in that case.

OPTIONS
       --restart-after-upgrade
           Do not stop the unit file until after the package upgrade has been
           completed.  This is the default behaviour in compat 10.

           In earlier compat levels the default was to stop the unit file in
           the prerm, and start it again in the postinst.

           This can be useful for daemons that should not have a possibly long
           downtime during upgrade. But you should make sure that the daemon
           will not get confused by the package being upgraded while it's
           running before using this option.

       --no-restart-after-upgrade
           Undo a previous --restart-after-upgrade (or the default of compat
           10).  If no other options are given, this will cause the service to
           be stopped in the prerm script and started again in the postinst
           script.

       -r, --no-stop-on-upgrade, --no-restart-on-upgrade
           Do not stop service on upgrade.

       --no-start
           Do not start the unit file after upgrades and after initial
           installation (the latter is only relevant for services without a
           corresponding init script).

NOTES
       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called
       between invocations of this command (with the same arguments).
       Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added
       to maintainer scripts.

       Note that dh_systemd_start should be run after dh_installinit so that
       it can detect corresponding SysV init scripts. The default sequence in
       dh does the right thing, this note is only relevant when you are
       calling dh_systemd_start manually.
