       systemd-networkd.service, systemd-networkd - Network manager

SYNOPSIS         top

       systemd-networkd.service

       /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-networkd

DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-networkd is a system service that manages networks. It
       detects and configures network devices as they appear, as well as
       creating virtual network devices.

       To configure low-level link settings independently of networks, see
       systemd.link(5).

       Network configurations applied before networkd is started are not
       removed, and static configuration applied by networkd is not removed
       when networkd exits. Dynamic configuration applied by networkd may
       also optionally be left in place on shutdown. This ensures restarting
       networkd does not cut the network connection, and, in particular,
       that it is safe to transition between the initrd and the real root,
       and back.

CONFIGURATION FILES         top

       The configuration files are read from the files located in the system
       network directory /usr/lib/systemd/network, the volatile runtime
       network directory /run/systemd/network and the local administration
       network directory /etc/systemd/network.

       Networks are configured in .network files, see systemd.network(5),
       and virtual network devices are configured in .netdev files, see
       systemd.netdev(5).
