       machinectl - Control the systemd machine manager

       machinectl [OPTIONS...] {COMMAND} [NAME...]

       machinectl may be used to introspect and control the state of the
       systemd(1) virtual machine and container registration manager systemd-

       The following options are understood:

       -p, --property=
	   When showing machine properties, limit the output to certain
	   properties as specified by the argument. If not specified, all set
	   properties are shown. The argument should be a property name, such
	   as "Name". If specified more than once, all properties with the
	   specified names are shown.

       -a, --all
	   When showing machine properties, show all properties regardless of
	   whether they are set or not.

       -l, --full
	   Do not ellipsize process tree entries.

	   When used with kill, choose which processes to kill. Must be one of
	   leader, or all to select whether to kill only the leader process of
	   the machine or all processes of the machine. If omitted, defaults
	   to all.

       -s, --signal=
	   When used with kill, choose which signal to send to selected
	   processes. Must be one of the well-known signal specifiers, such as
	   SIGTERM, SIGINT or SIGSTOP. If omitted, defaults to SIGTERM.

	   Do not print the legend, i.e. the column headers and the footer.

       -H, --host=
	   Execute the operation remotely. Specify a hostname, or username and
	   hostname separated by "@", to connect to. This will use SSH to talk
	   to the remote machine manager instance.

       -M, --machine=
	   Execute operation on a local container. Specify a container name to
	   connect to.

       -h, --help
	   Print a short help text and exit.

	   Print a short version string and exit.

	   Do not pipe output into a pager.

       The following commands are understood:

	   List currently running virtual machines and containers.

       status ID...
	   Show terse runtime status information about one or more virtual
	   machines and containers. This function is intended to generate
	   human-readable output. If you are looking for computer-parsable
	   output, use show instead.

       show ID...
	   Show properties of one or more registered virtual machines or
	   containers or the manager itself. If no argument is specified,
	   properties of the manager will be shown. If an ID is specified,
	   properties of this virtual machine or container are shown. By
	   default, empty properties are suppressed. Use --all to show those
	   too. To select specific properties to show, use --property=. This
	   command is intended to be used whenever computer-parsable output is
	   required. Use status if you are looking for formatted
	   human-readable output.

       login ID
	   Open a terminal login session to a container. This will create a
	   TTY connection to a specific container and asks for the execution
	   of a getty on it. Note that this is only supported for containers
	   running systemd(1) as init system.

       reboot ID...
	   Reboot one or more containers. This will trigger a reboot by
	   sending SIGINT to the container's init process, which is roughly
	   equivalent to pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del on a non-containerized system,
	   and is compatible with containers running any init system.

       poweroff ID...
	   Power off one or more containers. This will trigger a reboot by
	   sending SIGRTMIN+4 to the container's init process, which causes
	   systemd-compatible init systems to shut down cleanly. This
	   operation does not work on containers that do not run a
	   systemd(1)-compatible init system, such as sysvinit.

       kill ID...
	   Send a signal to one or more processes of the virtual machine or
	   container. This means processes as seen by the host, not the
	   processes inside the virtual machine or container. Use --kill-who=
	   to select which process to kill. Use --signal= to select the signal
	   to send.

       terminate ID...
	   Terminates a virtual machine or container. This kills all processes
	   of the virtual machine or container and deallocates all resources
	   attached to that instance.

       On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.

	   Pager to use when --no-pager is not given; overrides $PAGER.
	   Setting this to an empty string or the value "cat" is equivalent to
	   passing --no-pager.

	   Override the default options passed to less ("FRSXMK").
