startup - event signalling system startup
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.
A service with no other dependencies run on startup might use:
start on startup
