What Others Think

As people always say, RTFM. There's no need for grep, systemctl has all the options you need. systemctl --no-page -t service -a --state running --no-legend

Well, no need to be rude, I read the CLI --help and it did not show that specific state for the --state option. -t --type=TYPE List units of a particular type --state=STATE List units with particular LOAD or SUB or ACTIVE state Anyways, thank you or suggesting a more elegant CLI :-)

I took your advice, and updated the CLI. (again, thank you)
