NAME - Target unit configuration


       A unit configuration file whose name ends in ".target" encodes
       information about a target unit of systemd, which is used for grouping
       units and as well-known synchronization points during start-up.

       This unit type has no specific options. See systemd.unit(5) for the
       common options of all unit configuration files. The common
       configuration items are configured in the generic [Unit] and [Install]
       sections. A separate [Target] section does not exist, since no
       target-specific options may be configured.

       Target units do not offer any additional functionality on top of the
       generic functionality provided by units. They exist merely to group
       units via dependencies (useful as boot targets), and to establish
       standardized names for synchronization points used in dependencies
       between units. Among other things, target units are a more flexible
       replacement for SysV runlevels in the classic SysV init system. (And
       for compatibility reasons special target units such as
       exist which are used by the SysV runlevel compatibility code in
       systemd. See systemd.special(7) for details).

       Unless DefaultDependencies= is set to false, target units will
       implicitly complement all configured dependencies of type Wants=,
       Requires=, RequiresOverridable= with dependencies of type After= if the
       units in question also have DefaultDependencies=true.
