scsi_stop - stop (spin down) one or more SCSI disks
scsi_stop [--help] [--verbose] [--wait] DEVICE [DEVICE]*
This Bourne shell script calls the sg_start utility on each given DEVICE. The purpose is to spin down (stop) each given DEVICE.
Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well. -h, --help print out the usage message then exit. -v, --verbose increase level or verbosity. -w, --wait wait for the spin down (stop) on each given DEVICE to complete. The default action is to do each stop in immediate mode.
The sg_start utility calls the SCSI START STOP UNIT command and can either start (spin up) or stop (spin down) a SCSI disk depending on the given command line options.
The exit status of this script is 0 when it is successful. Otherwise the exit status is that of the last sg_start utility called. See the sg3_utils(8) man page.
