Do my system use systemd or upstart?

I have a really basic question: can I figure out, whether my system (F23, 64-bit, no SSH) uses systemd or upstart?

I guess, it does not use systemd, because the booting process still takes a lot of time. But if I can figure out, which of the init systems is used, how can I configure this? Which prerequisites does systemd have?

[edit] One guy told me, that the init system/process is not related to the kernel (version), is this correct?

If you using Fedora 23 you are using systemd you can confirm this by doing


on the terminal it will show all processes, is you want to know which process is to slow on boot you can use:

 systemd-analyze blame

To see the process and what time take at boot.

Yes the init system is not related to the version of the kernel.
