shutdown time of variscite when calling poweroff

we are running shutdown command, and it takes sometimes 30 seconds for the device to shut down.
this is the command that we are running:
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.systemd1 /org/freedesktop/systemd1 org.freedesktop.systemd1.Manager.PowerOff

are we suppose to do something else? looks like our SOM (Variscite) is still on, for some random long time.


Hi Daniel, just to clarify your statement, you said “looks like our SOM (Variscite) is still on, for some random long time”…Does that mean in addition to the 30 seconds or so that you reported to shut down? And also, I understand you say it is random, but can give any estimate? Is it 1 minute more, 5 minutes more, an hour more? …And finally, after that random time, does the device indeed properly shut down?

hi, thanks for the reply.
it takes around 45~ seconds in average, it never takes more than 1 minute and 20 seconds.
At the end, the device properly shutdown.


Have you tried using the supervisor to shutdown the device?

There’s an optional force parameter to it too. Would love to understand more about why you are using dbus-send - and what are the times you see when powering down using the supervisor API
