       startup - event signalling system startup

       startup [ENV]...

       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 gen-
       erating 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 compat-
       ible runlevel 0 and runlevel 6 events provide this functionality.  How-
       ever,  when  running  as a Session Init, the session-end event performs
       this function.

       A service with no other dependencies run on startup might use:

              start on startup

       runlevel(7) session-end(7) init(5) init(8)
