Thread: Default timers in OpenSUSE

  1. #1

    Question Default timers in OpenSUSE

    I must have badly messed up with my configuration a few months ago, and in due time I now realise all systemd timers are disabled.
    Now I have to guess which ones to enable, and I have little clue whether each single one of them is useful, resource-intense, or dangerous (for example, I remember having read automatic trimming on SSD storage might have side effects).
    I would appreciate suggestions on single timers, on all of them, or even just a snapshot of which are the default settings on OpenSUSE Tumbleweed.
    My own snapshot (systemctl list-unit-files --type=timer):
    Code:
    UNIT FILE                    STATE   
    backup-rpmdb.timer           disabled
    backup-sysconfig.timer       disabled
    btrfs-balance.timer          disabled
    btrfs-defrag.timer           disabled
    btrfs-scrub.timer            disabled
    btrfs-trim.timer             disabled
    check-battery.timer          disabled
    chrony-dnssrv@.timer         disabled
    fstrim.timer                 disabled
    fwupd-refresh.timer          disabled
    lifecycle-report.timer       disabled
    logrotate.timer              enabled 
    mandb.timer                  disabled
    mdadm-last-resort@.timer     static   
    mdcheck_continue.timer       disabled
    mdcheck_start.timer          disabled
    mdmonitor-oneshot.timer      disabled
    packagekit-background.timer  disabled
    shadow.timer                 static   
    snapper-boot.timer           disabled
    snapper-cleanup.timer        disabled
    snapper-timeline.timer       disabled
    systemd-tmpfiles-clean.timer static   
    xfs_scrub_all.timer          disabled
    
    (logrotate is the reason I realised the issue, so I suppose there are good reasons to enable it).

    Note that the timers listed by @Knurpht apply to his own machine,

    If you have questions about what other timers you may want to activate on your machine, ask if your research doesn't pan out...
