       online - Wait for network to come online

SYNOPSIS         top



DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-networkd-wait-online is a oneshot system service (see
       systemd.service(5)), that waits for the network to be configured.
       By default, it will wait for all links it is aware of and which
       are managed by systemd-networkd.service(8) to be fully configured
       or failed, and for at least one link to be online. Here, online
       means that the link's operational state is equal or higher than
       "degraded". The threshold can be configured by
       --operational-state= option.

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are understood:

           Network interface to wait for before deciding if the system
           is online. This is useful when a system has several
           interfaces which will be configured, but a particular one is
           necessary to access some network resources. When used, all
           other interfaces are ignored. This option may be used more
           than once to wait for multiple network interfaces. When this
           option is specified multiple times, then
           systemd-networkd-wait-online waits for all specified
           interfaces to be online. Optionally, required minimum and
           maximum operational states can be specified after a colon
           ":". Please see networkctl(1) for possible operational
           states. If the operational state is not specified here, then
           the value from RequiredForOnline= in the corresponding
           .network file is used if present, and "degraded" otherwise.

           Network interfaces to be ignored when deciding if the system
           is online. By default, only the loopback interface is
           ignored. This option may be used more than once to ignore
           multiple network interfaces.

           Takes a minimum operational state and an optional maximum
           operational state. Please see networkctl(1) for possible
           operational states. If set, the specified value overrides
           RequiredForOnline= settings in .network files. But this does
           not override operational states specified in --interface=

           Even if several interfaces are in configuring state,
           systemd-networkd-wait-online exits with success when at least
           one interface becomes online. When this option is specified
           with --interface=, then systemd-networkd-wait-online waits
           for one of the specified interfaces to be online. This option
           is useful when some interfaces may not have carrier on boot.

           Fail the service if the network is not online by the time the
           timeout elapses. A timeout of 0 disables the timeout.
           Defaults to 120 seconds.

       -q, --quiet
           Suppress log messages.

       -h, --help
           Print a short help text and exit.

           Print a short version string and exit.
