Some examples of Upstart events generated by this bridge:

Event emitted when the system Upstart is restarted.


Any event emitted on the system Upstart.


upstart-events-bridge receives information about Upstart system events(8) have completed and creates Upstart session events for them.

It emits events which match the pattern ":sys:*". Forwarding any event that’s triggered on the system upstart as well as a virtual "restarted" event when upstart itself is restarted (during upgrades).

See upstart-events(7) and for further details.

This bridge should be run as a user, after the session bus has been setup and only once per session init.



Detach and run in the background.
