List Services on Ubuntu 20.04 - All about it ?

This article covers how to list all services by using the systemctl command on Ubuntu 20.04. In fact, systemctl is a command-line utility that is used for controlling systemd and managing services, which is part of systemd.


The syntax is the rule and format of how the systemctl command can be used.

These syntax options can be reordered, but a straight format must be followed:

systemctl [OPTIONS.] {COMMAND} 
  • COMMAND: Replace COMMAND.. with the name of the command service names.
  • -t –type=TYPE, –state=STATE: Use the -t or –type or –state=STATE to list units of a particular type of service state: Active, Inactive.
  • -a –all: Use the -a or –all to show all properties/all units currently in memory, including dead/empty ones. To list all units installed on the system, use the 'list-unit-files' command instead.
  • -r –recursive: Use the -r or –recursive to show unit list of host and local containers.
  • –help: Display a help message and exit.
