NAME
       starting - event signalling that a job is starting

SYNOPSIS
       starting JOB=JOB INSTANCE=INSTANCE [ENV]...

DESCRIPTION
       The  starting  event  is  generated by the Upstart init(8) daemon when a new instance of a job begins starting.
       The JOB environment variable contains the job name, and the INSTANCE environment variable contains the instance
       name which will be empty for single-instance jobs.

       init(8) will wait for all services started by this event to be running, all tasks started by this event to have
       finished and all jobs stopped by this event to be stopped before allowing the job to continue starting.

       This allows jobs to effectively insert themselves as dependencies of other jobs.  The event is  typically  com-
       bined with the stopped(7) event by services.

       Job  configuration  files  may use the export stanza to export environment variables from their own environment
       into the starting event.  See init(5) for more details.

EXAMPLE
       A service that wishes to be running whenever another service would be running, started before and stopped after
       it, might use:

              start on starting apache
              stop on stopped apache

       A task that must be run before another task or service is started might use:

              start on starting postgresql
