SYNOPSISqdel [-c] [-m message] [-p] [-W delay] job_identifier ...
DESCRIPTIONThe qdel command deletes jobs in the order in which their job identifiers are presented to the command. A job is deleted by sending a Delete Job batch request to the batch server that owns the job. A job that has been deleted is no longer subject to management by batch services.
A batch job may be deleted by its owner, the batch operator, or the batch administrator.
A batch job being deleted by a server will be sent a SIGTERM signal following by a SIGKILL signal. The time delay between the two signals is an attribute of the execution queue from which the job was run (settable by the administrator). This delay may be overridden by the option.
See the PBS ERS section 18.104.22.168, "Delete Job Request", for more information.
- -W delay
Specify the delay between the sending of the SIGTERM and SIGKILL
signals. The argument
specifies a unsigned integer number of seconds.
- Clean up unreported jobs from the server. This should only be used if the scheduler is unable to purge unreported jobs. This option is only available to a batch operator or the batch administrator.
- Forcibly purge the job from the server. This should only be used if a running job will not exit because its allocated nodes are unreachable. The admin should make every attempt at resolving the problem on the nodes. If a job's mother superior recovers after purging the job, any epilogue scripts may still run. This option is only available to a batch operator or the batch administrator.
- -m message
- Specify a comment to be included in the email. The argument specifies the comment to send. This option is only available to a batch operator or the batch administrator.
