LXC-STOP(1)                                                  LXC-STOP(1)

NAME         top

       lxc-stop - stop the application running inside a container

SYNOPSIS         top

       lxc-stop -n name [ -W ]  [ -r ]  [ -t timeout ]  [ -k ]  [
       --nokill ]  [ --nolock ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       lxc-stop reboots, cleanly shuts down, or kills all the processes
       inside the container. By default, it will request a clean
       shutdown of the container by sending lxc.signal.halt (defaults to
       SIGPWR) to the container's init process, waiting up to 60 seconds
       for the container to exit, and then returning. If the container
       fails to cleanly exit in 60 seconds, it will be sent the
       lxc.signal.stop (defaults to SIGKILL) to force it to shut down. A
       request to reboot will send the lxc.signal.reboot (defaults to
       SIGINT) to the container's init process.

       The [-W], [-r], [-k] and [--nokill] options specify the action to
       perform.  [-W] indicates that after performing the specified
       action, lxc-stop should immediately exit, while [-t TIMEOUT]
       specifies the maximum amount of time to wait for the container to
       complete the shutdown or reboot.

OPTIONS         top

       -r,--reboot
              Request a reboot of the container.

       -k,--kill
              Rather than requesting a clean shutdown of the container,
              explicitly kill all tasks in the container. This is the
              legacy lxc-stop behavior.

       --nokill
              Only request a clean shutdown, do not kill the container
              tasks if the clean shutdown fails.

       --nolock
              This option avoids the use of any of the API lxc locking,
              and should only be used if lxc-stop is hanging due to a
              bad system state.

       -W,--nowait
              Simply perform the requestion action (reboot, shutdown, or
              hard kill) and exit.

       -t,--timeout TIMEOUT
              Wait TIMEOUT seconds before hard-stopping the container.

EXIT VALUE         top

       0      The container was successfully stopped.

       1      An error occurred while stopping the container.

       2      The specified container exists but was not running.

DIAGNOSTIC         top

       The container was not found
              The specified container was not created before with the
              lxc-create command.
