    Command:

    telinit

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           telinit [OPTION]...  RUNLEVEL
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           telinit may be used to change the system runlevel.
    
           The  RUNLEVEL argument should be one of the multi-user runlevels 2-5, 0
           to halt the system, 6 to reboot the system or 1  to  bring  the  system
           down into single-user mode.
    
           Normally  you would use the shutdown(8) tool to halt or reboot the sys-
           tem, or to bring it down to single-user mode.
    
           RUNLEVEL may also be S or s which will place the system  directly  into
           single-user  mode without actually stopping processes first, you proba-
           bly won't want that.
    
           The runlevel is  changed  by  emitting  the  runlevel(7)  event,  which
           includes  the new runlevel in the RUNLEVEL environment variable as well
           as the  previous  runlevel  (obtained  from  the  environment  or  from
           /var/run/utmp) in the PREVLEVEL variable.
    
           telinit  will  write the new runlevel to /var/run/utmp and append a new
           entry to /var/log/wtmp.
    
       Other commands
           telinit may be also used to send basic commands to the  init(8)  daemon
           for compatibility with System V.  These are:
    
           Q or q to  request  that  init(8)  reload  its  configuration.  This is
                  rarely necessary since Upstart watches  its  configuration  with
                  inotify(7) and is deprecated by the initctl(8) reload-configura-
                  tion command.
    
           U or u to request that the init(8) daemon re-execute itself.   This  is
                  not  recommended  since  Upstart is currently unable to preserve
                  its state, but is necessary when upgrading system libraries.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -e KEY=VALUE
                  This specifies an additional environment variable to be included
                  in the event along with RUNLEVEL and PREVLEVEL.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

           RUNLEVEL
                  telinit  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
