, --cancel
Cancel a pending shutdown.
, --no-write
Do not write the wtmp boot record.
, --dry-run
Print the action that would be taken without executing it. This is to allow testing.
, --halt
Stop all services, kill all remaining processes and halt the system.
, --kexec
Stop all services, kill all processes and boot directly into a new kernel loaded via kexec(8).
, --poweroff
Stop all services, kill all processes and power off the system.
, --reexec
instruct openrc-init to re-exec itself. This should be used after an upgrade of OpenRC if you are using openrc-init as your init process.
, --reboot
Stop all services, kill all processes and reboot the system.
, --single
Stop all services, kill all processes and move to single user mode.
, --write-only
