+
+                <para>Snapshot units are not configured via unit
+                configuration files. Nonetheless they are named
+                similar to filenames. A unit name whose name ends in
+                <filename>.snapshot</filename> refers to a dynamic
+                snapshot of the systemd runtime state.</para>
+
+                <para>Snapshots are not configured on disk but created
+                dynamically via <command>systemctl snapshot</command>
+                (see
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemctl</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                for details) or an equivalent command. When created
+                they will automatically get dependencies on the
+                currently activated units. They hence act as saved
+                runtime state of the systemd manager. Later on the
+                user may choose to return to the saved state via
+                <command>systemctl isolate</command>. They are hence
+                useful to roll back to a defined state after
+                temporarily starting/stopping services or
+                similar.</para>
