Where to find system services information

Hi ,

Where can i find the complete information on all the system services,
such as,

Name of the System Service,
Description of the System Service,
State of the System Service... Running / Stopped

/etc/rc.d/ has the set of all running and stopped processes under relevant folders,
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/, /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/ etc....
but I need the description too.

thanks and regards,

The most convenient way of getting an overview of services like this is to use your distribution's management tools. The scripts are essentially distribution-specific, and Red Hat scripts are certainly written to feed information to the system-config-services/redhat-config-services tool.
