Ignite vm stop

ignite vm stop

Stop running VMs


Stop one or multiple VMs. The VMs are matched by prefix based on their ID and name. To stop multiple VMs, chain the matches separated by spaces. The force flag (-f, --force) kills VMs instead of trying to stop them gracefully.

The VMs are given a 20 second grace period to shut down before they will be forcibly killed.

ignite vm stop <vm>... [flags]


  -f, --force-kill   Force kill the VM
  -h, --help         help for stop
