startup(7)                                                          startup(7)



NAME
       startup - event signalling system startup

SYNOPSIS
       startup [ENV]...

DESCRIPTION
       The  startup event is generated by the Upstart init(8) daemon after it has completed its own initialisation and
       is the signal that the rest of the system may be started.

       Typically this will involve checking and mounting the partitions and drives that form the  filesystem,  loading
       drivers for connected devices and starting the X windowing system or other login environment.

       In  the  default  Upstart  configuration,  the  primary  task  run  on  the  startup event is the /etc/init/rc-
       sysinit.conf job responsible for generating the System V compatible runlevel(7) event.  See  that  page  for  a
       more detailed explanation of this process.

       Paradoxically  there  is  currently  no  corresponding Upstart-native event signifying that the system is to be
       shutdown, only the System V compatible runlevel 0 and runlevel 6 events provide this functionality.

EXAMPLE
       A service with no other dependencies run on startup might use:

              start on startup
