systemd.kill — Kill environment configuration
Unit configuration files for services, sockets, mount points and swap devices share a subset of configuration options which define the process killing parameters of spawned processes.
This man page lists the configuration options shared by these four unit types. See systemd.unit(5) for the common options of all unit configuration files, and systemd.service(5), systemd.socket(5), systemd.swap(5) and systemd.mount(5) for more information on the specific unit configuration files. The execution specific configuration options are configured in the [Service], [Socket], [Mount], or [Swap] section, depending on the unit type.
