NAME

started – event signalling that a job is running

 

SYNOPSIS

started

JOB=JOB

INSTANCE=INSTANCE

[ENV]…

 

DESCRIPTION

The
started

event is generated by the Upstart
init(8)

daemon when an instance of a job has finished starting and is now running. 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)

emits this event as an informational signal, services and tasks started
or stopped by this event will do so in parallel with other activity. It
is typically combined with the
stopping(7)

event by services declaring a dependency.


Job configuration files may use the
export

stanza to export environment variables from their own environment into
the
started

event. See
init(5)

for more details.

 

EXAMPLE

A service that wishes to depend on another service might use:




start on started apache
stop on stopping apache


A task that must be run after another task or service has been started might
use:




start on started postgresql
