    Command:

    reboot

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           reboot [OPTION]...
    
           halt [OPTION]...
    
           poweroff [OPTION]...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           These programs allow a system administrator to reboot, halt or poweroff
           the system.
    
           When called with --force or when in runlevel 0 or 6, this tool  invokes
           the reboot(2) system call itself and directly reboots the system.  Oth-
           erwise this simply invokes the shutdown(8) tool  with  the  appropriate
           arguments.
    
           Before  invoking  reboot(2), a shutdown time record is first written to
           /var/log/wtmp
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -f, --force
                  Does not invoke shutdown(8)  and  instead  performs  the  actual
                  action you would expect from the name.
    
           -p, --poweroff
                  Instructs the halt command to instead behave as poweroff.
    
           -w, --wtmp-only
                  Does  not  call  shutdown(8)  or  the  reboot(2) system call and
                  instead only writes the shutdown record to /var/log/wtmp
    
           --verbose
                  Outputs slightly more verbose messages  when  rebooting,  useful
                  for debugging problems with shutdown.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

           RUNLEVEL
                  reboot  will  read  the  current  runlevel from this environment
                  variable if set in preference to reading from /var/run/utmp
    
    
    

    FILES

           /var/run/utmp
                  Where the current runlevel will be read  from;  this  file  will
                  also  be  updated  with  the runlevel record being replaced by a
                  shutdown time record.
    
           /var/log/wtmp
                  A new runlevel record for the shutdown time will be appended  to
                  this file.
