Running Node Red as a service on Raspberry Pi 4

If I run Node Red as a service that starts up at boot, will my flow automattically start or will I somehow have to start it also?

If they are setup to start then yes they will just run

once NR is started, it will be running. That means any input node that receives data will kick off.

For instance, lets say you have an mqtt-in node connected to a debug node. You won't see anything util a msg is published (by some device) using the topic that the mqtt-in node is watching.

If you have an inject node set to fire on deploy and every 5 seconds, then as soon as NR starts, the inject will send a msg and every 5 seconds after that.

Thanks thats exactly what I needed to know.
