Wakeonlan (wol) enables you to switch ON remote servers without physically accessing it. Wakeonlan sends magic packets to wake-on-LAN enabled ethernet adapters and motherboards to switch on remote computers.
By mistake, when you shutdown a system instead of rebooting, you can use Wakeonlan to power on the server remotely. Also, If you have a server that don’t need to be up and running 24×7, you can turn off and turn on the server remotely anytime you want.
This article gives a brief overview of Wake-On-LAN and instructions to set up Wakeonlan feature.
