Description azrdev 2014-06-02 14:28:39 UTC
Like  systemctl status  already does, systemctl restart should display log output of the restarting service. An example where this is deemed useful would be the dhcpcd@.service running on an unstable link.

Marking as RFE, but this feature is probably not going to happen. "status" is for inspection; "restart" is an imperative command that should have minimal or no output when operating properly.
