Description

I saw BoundBy= and ConsistsOf= dependencies were mentioned in systemctl(1), but I can't find the detailed descriptions of them anywhere in other documentations. I assume they should have been described in systemd.unit(5)?

Humm. These are primarily internal deps. They are automatically created as inverse of BindsTo= and PartOf= and cannot be configured directly. The hence aren't really first-class deps.

That said I figure it doesn't hurt documenting such internal deps too, as they do show up in systemctl show, indeed.

@poettering Since those dependencies are only for internal use, how about removing them in systemctl(1) and describe them with something like "inverse BindsTo=" and "inverse PartOf=" instead?

well, even though they are for internal use they actually are interesting to admins too, as they may be used to determine things like "which service is bound to this device?" and things like that.
