reboot, halt, poweroff - reboot or stop the system
These utilities allow a system administrator to reboot, halt or
poweroff the system.
When called without the -f option, they simply invoke shutdown(8) with
the appropriate arguments.
-f Does not invoke shutdown(8) and instead performs the actual
action you would expect from the name. This is generally used
from the event handler itself.
-n Does not call sync(2) before performing the reboot; this could
result in data loss. On Linux, this probably has no effect as
the kernel flushes all write buffers before shutting down.
-h Iterates /proc/ide to find all IDE disk drives and requests that
they enter a standby mode before shutting down. On Linux, this
is unnecessary as the kernel will do this anyway.
-i Iterates configured network interfaces and brings them down
before shutting down. On Linux, this is unnecessary as the
kernel will do this anyway.
-p Instructs the halt command to instead behave as poweroff.
This tool is provided for compatibility with the traditional System V
