command line status macos diagnosis

I thought I would quickly post a short note about resolving a problem remotely.

unfortunately, about 2 weeks ago, one of my three syncthing installs on a mac decided to stop responding. I do not have VNC running on it (long story), so I need to figure out on the command line what is wrong.

my first step was sudo launchctl list | grep -i syncthing but when su this does not tell me that it is running even on one of the macos where it is functioning well.

interestingly, launchctl tells me about syncthing when I am the ordinary user:

$ launchctl list | grep syncthing

thereafter, I just started syncthing first by hand on the remote server that had stopped, and learned all sorts of interesting thing

$ syncthing
[start] 08:53:32 INFO: syncthing v1.12.0 "Fermium Flea" (go1.15.5 darwin-amd64) brew@Catalina 2020-11-30 20:54:57 UTC [noupgrade]

now I have to figure out why launchctl tells me

Could not find domain for port (Aqua)

when I try to load homebrew.mxcl.syncthing…
