lxc-stop - stop the application running inside a container


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


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.haltsignal
(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.stopsignal (defaults to SIGKILL) to force it to shut
down. A request to reboot will send the lxc.rebootsignal (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.


Request a reboot of the container.

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

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

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.

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

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


0 The container was successfully stopped.

1 An error occurred while stopping the container.

2 The specified container exists but was not running.


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