`multipass stop` command

The multipass stop command without any argument will stop the primary instance. You can also pass one or more instance names or the --all option to stop more instances at the same time.

Only Running instances can be stopped. Stopped instances can be started again with multipass start.

$ multipass help stop
Usage: multipass stop [options] [<name> ...]
Stop the named instances, if running. Exits with
return code 0 if successful.

Options:
  -h, --help         Displays help on commandline options
  -v, --verbose      Increase logging verbosity. Repeat the 'v' in the short
                     option for more detail. Maximum verbosity is obtained with
                     4 (or more) v's, i.e. -vvvv.
  --all              Stop all instances
  -t, --time <time>  Time from now, in minutes, to delay shutdown of the
                     instance
  -c, --cancel       Cancel a pending delayed shutdown

Arguments:
  name               Names of instances to stop. If omitted, and without the
                     --all option, 'primary' will be assumed.
