To list the running services in your CentOS installation, there are several methods and tools that can be used. We suggest the following commands to meet this need:

Older versions of CentOS & Upstart:

service --status-all

List services and their open ports. This command can be important when you’re looking to do port forwarding or troubleshooting the network behavior of a unit:

netstat -tulpn

Systemd(user & root), these commands can be used to list every service, including those that are inactive. This will also list a description of each service.

systemctl -l --type service --all
systemctl -r --type service --all
