FASTBOOT(8)               BSD System Manager's Manual              FASTBOOT(8)

NAME
     fastboot, fasthalt - reboot/halt the system without checking the disks

SYNOPSIS
     fastboot [boot-options]
     fasthalt [halt-options]

DESCRIPTION
     Fastboot and fasthalt are shell scripts which reboot and halt the system
     without checking the file systems.  This is done by creating a file
     /fastboot, then invoking the reboot program.  The system startup script,
     /etc/rc, looks for this file and, if present, skips the normal invocation
     of fsck(8).

SEE ALSO
     halt(8),  reboot(8),  rc(8)

HISTORY
     The fastboot command appeared in 4.2BSD.
