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
