I am needing to see the status of some services on some of our RHEL 5.8 hosts on which I am not an admin. Much to my surprise, I am not able to get any info how to do it (such as
systemctl on Fedora) from Google. Neither
systemctl are accessible to me, not sure if it is because of permissions or they are just not available on the system but there are no man pages for either.
Why is it that there is such a mysterious lack of service management documentation online for RHEL 5.8 and which commands can I use for simple service listings?
