Manual page for HALT(8)

halt - stop the processor

SYNOPSIS

/usr/etc/halt [ -nqy ]

DESCRIPTION

halt writes out any information pending to the disks and then stops the processor.

halt normally logs the system shutdown to the system log daemon, syslogd.8 and places a shutdown record in the login accounting file /var/adm/wtmp. These actions are inhibited if the -n or -q options are present.

OPTIONS

-n
Prevent the sync before stopping.
-q
Do a quick halt. No graceful shutdown is attempted.
-y
Halt the system, even from a dialup terminal.

FILES

/var/adm/wtmp
login accounting file
