HALT(8)                     System Manager's Manual                    HALT(8)



NAME
       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,  sys-
       logd(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

SEE ALSO
       reboot(8), shutdown(8), syslogd(8)
