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 combined 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
