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
