DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-hostnamed.service is a system service that may be used to
       change the system's hostname and related machine metadata from user
       programs. It is automatically activated on request and terminates
       itself when unused.

       It currently offers access to five variables:

       ·   The current hostname (Example: "dhcp-192-168-47-11")

       ·   The static (configured) hostname (Example: "lennarts-computer")

       ·   The pretty hostname (Example: "Lennart's Computer")

       ·   A suitable icon name for the local host (Example:

       ·   A chassis type (Example: "tablet")

       The tool hostnamectl(1) is a command line client to this service.

       See org.freedesktop.hostname1(5) and org.freedesktop.LogControl1(5)
       for a description of the D-Bus API.
