Running Node.js on Linux with systemd

The Node.js community has embraced process monitoring tools such as PM2, Nodemon, and Forever, which is understandable. For example, in addition to process monitoring, PM2 also boasts features around logging and port-sharing or clustering.

However, I’m a firm believer in using the Linux init system for process monitoring. In this blog post, I’ll show you how to recreate process management, logging and clustering functionality using the Linux init system, systemd, and I’ll make the case for this being a superior approach.

Please note that I’ve no intention of casting aspersions on any of the tools I’ve mentioned. But I think gaining familiarity with Linux is important for Node.js developers; it’s important to use standard tools that are well-proven and widely understood by sysadmins everywhere.
