    Command:

    init

    
    
    

    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 speci-
           fied  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 start-
           ing(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 emis-
                  sions 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.
