    NAME
           lxc-stop - stop the application running inside a container
    
    SYNOPSIS
           lxc-stop
    {-n name} [-W] [-r] [-t timeout] [-k] [--nokill] [--nolock]
    
    DESCRIPTION
           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
           -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
           0      The container was successfully stopped.
    
           1      An error occurred while stopping the container.
    
           2      The specified container exists but was not running.
    
    DIAGNOSTIC
           The container was not found
    	      The specified container was not created before with the lxc-
    	      create command.
