Strange days indeed:
systemctl status -l | iconv -f UTF-8 -t ASCII//TRANSLIT | sed 's/|//g' | sed 's/+-//g' | awk '{$1=$1;print}'

To do a quick comparison of what systemd thinks is the list of PPID's for Apache that are running, versus
the list ps gives.
Would have thought it would have been a quick thing, but argh.

In case that goes away:

please remove unicode from systemd outputs ... it's insane .. and fire please that teenager who did it.
please, consult that with some older and more experienced colleague (or any other responsible adult you
have avail around there) if you're in doubts .. I'm tired to explain, that logs should be ascii plaintext
and that they are very often parsed in industry by stupid old tools that choke on your sexy (and cunning) unicode ..
