I’ve read many post where people try to debug syncthing but can’t because they use whatever way to make it start at boot…
I like to be able to monitor my process both from the system and using SSH. To do it the easy way I use crontab and screen!
This will work for debian and many other distros
First off install screen : # apt-get install screen Then add a crontab ($ crontab -e) to start it at boot:
@reboot screen -d -m syncthing
Whenever you wish to look at syncthing output, you use “screen -r” in CLI. To get out, you press CTRL+A + D. It can be used for virtually anything.
Easy, simple and efficient.
