       files and directories

SYNOPSIS
       systemd-tmpfiles [OPTIONS...] [CONFIGFILE...]

       systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service

       systemd-tmpfiles-setup-dev.service

       systemd-tmpfiles-clean.service

       systemd-tmpfiles-clean.timer

DESCRIPTION
       systemd-tmpfiles creates, deletes, and cleans up volatile and temporary
       files and directories, based on the configuration file format and
       location specified in tmpfiles.d(5).

       If invoked with no arguments, it applies all directives from all
       configuration files. If one or more absolute filenames are passed on
       the command line, only the directives in these files are applied. If
       only the basename of a configuration file is specified, all
       configuration directories as specified in tmpfiles.d(5) are searched
       for a matching file.

OPTIONS
       The following options are understood:

       --create
           If this option is passed, all files and directories marked with f,
           F, w, d, D, v, p, L, c, b, m in the configuration files are created
           or written to. Files and directories marked with z, Z, t, T, a, and
           A have their ownership, access mode and security labels set.

       --clean
           If this option is passed, all files and directories with an age
           parameter configured will be cleaned up.

       --remove
           If this option is passed, the contents of directories marked with D
           or R, and files or directories themselves marked with r or R are
           removed.

       --boot
           Also execute lines with an exclamation mark.

       --prefix=path
           Only apply rules with paths that start with the specified prefix.
           This option can be specified multiple times.

       --exclude-prefix=path
           Ignore rules with paths that start with the specified prefix. This
           option can be specified multiple times.

       executed to ensure that all temporary and volatile directories are
       removed and created according to the configuration file:

           systemd-tmpfiles --remove --create

UNPRIVILEGED --CLEANUP OPERATION
       systemd-tmpfiles tries to avoid changing the access and modification
       times on the directories it accesses, which requires CAP_ADMIN
       privileges. When running as non-root, directories which are checked for
       files to clean up will have their access time bumped, which might
       prevent their cleanup.

EXIT STATUS
       On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
