If using the
manual keyword in an init or override Upstart script, it is not clear whether the services shut down process will be initiated or it will just be killed on shut down.
For instance, will MySQLs default timeout be extended (giving it enough time to flush buffers, as specified in the init script) when the manual override is used? If not, would it be preferable to use a
start on never setting, or do manually started services need to also be manually shut down?
The Upstart Cookbook has little to say on the matter.
