we defined the following details in our service



the details defined that service will start automatically 5 times ( StartLimitBurst=5) in case service will stop

is it possible to un-limit the service , so it will start every time ( without any limit ) in case service is stooped?

1 Answer 1


With your current settings, if the service runs successfully for 400 seconds, then the 5 times limit is reset and you will have the full 5 restarts available again.

But if you want to, you can disable the limit mechanism by setting StartLimitInterval=0. Then systemd will keep attempting to restart your service without limiting the number of attempts. There will still be a 10-second delay between server stopping and the next restart attempt, as defined by RestartSec=10.
