NAME

       zshutdown_notify - notify users of impending shutdown via Zephyr

SYNOPSIS

       zshutdown_notify

DESCRIPTION

       zshutdown_notify  reads  the  standard  input until EOF is reached, and
       then sends a Zephyr notice with the official  hostname,  the  collected
       input,  and  a  warning message as the message body of the notice.  The
       notice is sent to class FILSRV,  instance  <hostname>,  recipient  "*",
       where <hostname> is the official hostname of the sending host.

       Any  users  who are using resources on the sending host are expected to
       subscribe to these messages so they will be  warned  of  any  impending
       shutdowns.

       zshutdown_notify is usually invoked from within /etc/shutdown.
