# Ubuntu – systemd on 15.04 won’t log stdout of unit

15.04logloggingstdoutsystemd

I'm currently trying to make a systemd unit as a web server. Currently, my foo.service file looks as follows:

[Unit]
Description=The Foo Web Server

[Service]
Type=simple
ExecStart=/opt/foo/.cabal-sandbox/bin/foo

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target


The foo executable automatically logs all HTTP requests to stdout – this is well tested. However, when I view the logs with journalctl -u foo, I only get output like this:

...
May 06 17:46:57 localhost systemd[1]: Stopping The Foo Web Server...
May 06 17:46:57 localhost systemd[1]: Started Foo Web Server.
May 06 17:46:57 localhost systemd[1]: Starting The Foo Web Server...
May 06 17:47:08 localhost systemd[1]: Stopping The Foo Web Server...
May 06 17:47:08 localhost systemd[1]: Started The Foo Web Server.
May 06 17:47:08 localhost systemd[1]: Starting The Foo Web Server...


Could someone explain why it's not logging all stdout output? I looked briefly at this previous question, but it doesn't help – however it alluded to something along the lines of "…may not work for systems that don't use full systemd" – would this be the case for Ubuntu 15.04? Thank you in advance, any help with this would be much appreciated!

ExecStart=/usr/bin/stdbuf -oL /opt/foo/.cabal-sandbox/bin/foo
