fasthalt - Halts the system
Does not log the halt using syslog. Prevents the sync
before stopping, and does not log the halt using syslog.
Causes a quick halt, does not log the halt using syslog,
and makes no attempt to kill all processes.
The fasthalt command halts the system and flags a subsequent
reboot to skip the execution of fsck. The program
creates the fastboot file, then invokes the halt program.
The system start-up script contains instructions to look
for the fastboot file. If present, the script removes the
file and skips the invocation of the fsck command.
If the command is invoked without the -l, -n, or -q
option, the halt program logs the shutdown using the syslogd
command and places a record of the shutdown in the
login accounting file, /var/adm/wtmp. Using the -q and
the -n options imply the -l option.
You must have root privileges to use this command.
