Package: pgbouncer
Version: 1.5.4-6+deb8u1
Severity: important

I am trying to run pgbouncer in Debian Jessie (in lxc container if it is important)

I've installed pgbouncer package, and started the service, it said everything is ok:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/pgbouncer start
[ ok ] Starting pgbouncer (via systemctl): pgbouncer.service.

but no pgbouncer process were actually started

$ ps aux | grep pg
nataraj   5562  0.0  0.0  12744  2192 pts/2    S+   16:31   0:00 grep pg

sudo ls /var/run/postgresql/
gives no output.

Meanwhile pgbouncer and pgbouncer's config is workable. If I start it manually it starts to work and do something:

$ sudo su postgres

$ /usr/sbin/pgbouncer /etc/pgbouncer/pgbouncer.ini 
2016-03-23 16:36:10.827 5630 LOG File descriptor limit: 65536 (H:65536), max_client_conn: 100, max fds possible: 110
2016-03-23 16:36:10.827 5630 LOG listening on
2016-03-23 16:36:10.827 5630 LOG listening on unix:/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.6432
2016-03-23 16:36:10.827 5630 LOG process up: pgbouncer 1.5.4, libevent 2.0.21-stable (epoll), adns: evdns2

And you can see it's pid file in another console.

$ sudo ls /var/run/postgresql/

I still can not undertand why it does not work. This seems to be some systemd issue and I even do not know how to debug it
