          /lib/systemd/systemd-hostnamed

     DESCRIPTION
          systemd-hostnamed.service is a system service that may be
          used to change the system's hostname and related machine
          metadata from user programs. It is automatically activated
          on request and terminates itself when unused.

          It currently offers access to five variables:

          +o   The current hostname (Example: "dhcp-192-168-47-11")

          +o   The static (configured) hostname (Example:
              "lennarts-computer")

          +o   The pretty hostname (Example: "Lennart's Computer")

          +o   A suitable icon name for the local host (Example:
              "computer-laptop")

          +o   A chassis type (Example: "tablet")

          The tool hostnamectl(1) is a command line client to this
          service.
