Known Issue with `systemd` When Hosting Services on Linux

Adam Patterson

Please be aware that systemd will terminate processes which consume a lot of system resourcesTo avoid this, your servers must be configured such that systemd will not terminate LiveSwitch services. In LiveSwitch 1.10.x (targeted to September 2020) and higher this will be the default configuration. In earlier versions of LiveSwitch you must configure this by editing the .service file (e.g. media-server.service) and add the following line:

KillMode=none

See the best practice mention in the LiveSwitch Server Installation docs here: https://help.frozenmountain.com/docs/liveswitch/server/installation#InstalltheServices
