startup - event signalling system startup
event is generated by the Upstart init(8)
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.
This event is emitted when running both as pid 1 and as a Session Init.
Paradoxically there is currently no corresponding Upstart-native event
signifying that the system is to be shutdown, only the System V compatible
and runlevel 6
events provide this functionality.
However, when running as a Session Init, the session-end
A service with no other dependencies run on startup might use:
runlevel(7) session-end(7) init(5) init(8)
