NAME

       started - event signalling that a job is running

SYNOPSIS

       started JOB=JOB INSTANCE=INSTANCE [ENV]...

DESCRIPTION

       The  started  event  is generated by the Upstart init(8) daemon when an
       instance of a job has finished starting and is now  running.   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) emits this event as an informational signal, services and tasks
       started or stopped by this event will do  so  in  parallel  with  other
       activity.   It  is  typically  combined  with  the stopping(7) event by
       services declaring a dependency.

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

EXAMPLE

       A service that wishes to depend on another service might use:

              start on started apache
              stop on stopping apache

       A task that must be run after another task or service has been  started
       might use:

              start on started postgresql
