I recently upgraded rhnsd package from 5.0.37 to 5.0.44 when it is in 0.37 version it used to be running as one process rhnsd.service but from 0.44 it split into two services one is rhnsd.timer and other rhnsd.service. Only rhnsd.timer process is in the active state and rhnsd.service is always dead. I can't see any logs in /var/log/messages. Is there any solution to write logs out and see the activity of rhnsd processes.

Machine : centos 7.6 , x86_64
