wannu UPSTART :)

Upstart is an event-based replacement for the /sbin/init daemon which handles starting of tasks and services during boot, stopping them during shutdown and supervising them while the system is running.

Feature Highlights

  • Tasks and Services are started and stopped by events
  • Events are generated as tasks and services are started and stopped
  • Events may be received from any other process on the system
  • Services may be respawned if they die unexpectedly
  • Supervision and respawning of daemons which separate from their parent process
  • Communication with the init daemon over D-Bus
