NAME
     bhyvectl - control utility for bhyve instances

SYNOPSIS
     bhyvectl --vm=<vmname> [--create] [--destroy] [--get-stats]
              [--inject-nmi] [--force-reset] [--force-poweroff]

DESCRIPTION
     The bhyvectl command is a control utility for active bhyve(8) virtual
     machine instances.

     Note: Most bhyvectl flags are intended for querying and setting the state
     of an active instance.  These commands are intended for development
     purposes, and are not documented here.  A complete list can be obtained
     by executing bhyvectl without any arguments.

     The user-facing options are as follows:

     --vm=<vmname>      Operate on the virtual machine <vmname>.

     --create           Create the specified VM.

     --destroy          Destroy the specified VM.

     --get-stats        Retrieve statistics for the specified VM.

     --inject-nmi       Inject a non-maskable interrupt (NMI) into the VM.

     --force-reset      Force the VM to reset.

     --force-poweroff   Force the VM to power off.

EXIT STATUS
     The bhyvectl utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
