SYNOPSIS

       scsi_stop [--help] [--verbose] [--wait] DEVICE [DEVICE]*

DESCRIPTION

       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.

              increase level or verbosity.

              is to do each stop in immediate mode.

       or stop (spin down) a SCSI disk depending on the given command line options.

EXIT STATUS

       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.
