fasthalt - Halts the system
-l Does not log the halt using syslog.
-n Prevents the sync before stopping, and does not log the halt using sys-
-q Causes a quick halt, does not log the halt using syslog, and makes no
attempt to kill all processes.
The fasthalt command halts the system and flags a subsequent reboot to skip
the execution of fsck. The program creates the fastboot file, then invokes
the halt program. The system start-up script contains instructions to look
for the fastboot file. If present, the script removes the file and skips
the invocation of the fsck command.
If the command is invoked without the -l, -n, or -q option, the halt pro-
gram logs the shutdown using the syslogd command and places a record of the
shutdown in the login accounting file, /var/adm/wtmp. Using the -q and the
-n options imply the -l option.
You must have root privileges to use this command.
