looks like 'packetcapture off' will do it... here's a document that has all of the CLI commands listed:

No, "packetcaputure off" isn't going to do it.  

I want to shut it down.

You might ask why I want it shutdown?  The power to the data center has been lost.  Your operating on the UPS battery, and your shutting down servers and appliances like the Packetshaper gracefully while you still have some power.  And you don't want them all coming back online at the same time when power is restored.

I guess you could run the reset command to reboot it, then pull the power plug, before it boots back up.

It'd make it a whole lot easier if the typical shutdown command was available.

The "reset" command will reboot it.

=================================================
reset
Reset the unit. In certain situations, you may need to reboot the unit, for example, after
creating host accounting categories, changing system variables, and installing plug-ins.
reset
The statistics that are cleared after you reset the device include: active IP hosts, current speed
per host, active flows, peak flows, Top Talkers/Listeners, and dynamic hosts for Xpress
tunneling. All counters on the Monitor Traffic page are reset. All traffic configurations (such as
classes, policies, partitions, and static hosts defined for Xpress tunneling) are preserved when
you reboot.
To reset all settings to factory default, use the setup reset all command.

============================================================
setup reset
Return to the factory-default configuration and reboot the unit.
setup reset [all|clear]

set reset

Resets the PacketShaper settings (for example, NIC speed and IP
address, but not the traffic tree) to the factory default state, and then
reboots the unit

set reset all

Resets all settings and the configuration to the factory default state
Note: Use setup reset all only when you want to reset all
configuration settings ¿ basic configuration, the traffic tree with its
classes, policies, and partitions; measurement data; and events ¿ to
the factory-default settings. This command deletes all custom service
groups and returns any moved services back to their original groups.

set reset clear

Clears all files on the flash drive (9.256/), in addition to resetting all
settings and the configuration to the factory default state
These commands reset the unit's IP address to 207.78.98.254, making it unreachable on your
network until it is reconfigured using Guided Setup. (See Run Guided Setup for details.)

Note: The setup reset command works differently in shared mode.

To reboot the unit without modifying the settings, use the reset command.

This might be helpful too.  We're running a dated version of the o/s.

The reset command will reboot the Packeteer which is closer to shutting it down.
