init(8)                                                                init(8)



NAME
       init - Upstart process management daemon

SYNOPSIS
       init [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION
       init is the parent of all processes on the system, it is executed by the kernel and
       is responsible for starting all other processes; it is the parent of all  processes
       whose  natural  parents have died and it is responsible for reaping those when they
       die.

       Processes managed by init are known as  jobs  and  are  defined  by  files  in  the
       /etc/init directory.  See init(5) for more details on configuring Upstart.

   Events
       init(8)  is an event-based init daemon.  This means that jobs will be automatically
       started and stopped by changes that occur to  the  system  state,  including  as  a
       result of jobs starting and stopping.

       This  is  different to dependency-based init daemons which start a specified set of
       goal jobs, and resolve the order in which they should be  started  and  other  jobs
       required by iterating their dependencies.

       For more information on starting and stopping jobs, as well as emitting events that
       will automatically start and stop jobs, see the  manual  page  for  the  initctl(8)
       tool.

       The  primary  event  is  the startup(7) event, emitted when the daemon has finished
       loading its configuration.  Other useful events are  the  starting(7),  started(7),
       stopping(7) and stopped(7) events emitted as jobs change state.

   System V compatibility
       The  Upstart  init(8)  daemon does not keep track of runlevels itself, instead they
       are implemented entirely by its userspace tools.  The event emitted  to  signify  a
       change  of  runlevel is the runlevel(7) event.  For more information see its manual
       page.

OPTIONS
       Options are passed to init(8) by placing them on the kernel command-line.

       --verbose
              Outputs verbose messages about job state changes and event emissions to  the
              system console or log, useful for debugging boot.

NOTES
       init  is  not normally executed by a user process, and expects to have a process id
       of 1.  If this is not the case, it will actually execute telinit(8)  and  pass  all
       arguments to that.  See that manual page for further details.
