[systemd-devel] reacting to unit failures (OnFailure)

Lennart just gave me a solution, thank you. I'll use templates 

I have a system where components at the "single node" level have dependencies and HA policies, such as "restart this many times within this interval, if still fails - run this action" where action is a sequence of commands. Components provide this information in their own language and I have to generate systemd configuration for them. It's more complex than just rebooting the node so I couldn't use FailureAction.
