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 run-
       level(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
