qdel [ -f ] [ -help ] [ -u wc_user_list ] [ wc_job_range_list ] [ -t
Qdel provides a means for a user/operator/manager to delete one or more
jobs. A manager/operator can delete jobs belonging to any user, while a
regular user can only delete his or her own jobs. If a manager wants
to delete another user's job, the manager can specify the job id. If
the manager is using a job name or pattern, he or she must also specify
the user's name via "-u wc_user_list". A "qdel wc_job_name" will delete
only the jobs of the calling user by default. Qdel deletes jobs in the
order in which their job identifiers are presented. Find additional
information concerning wc_user_list and wc_job_list in sge_types(1).
-f Force deletion of job(s). The job(s) are deleted from the list
of jobs registered at sge_qmaster(8) even if the sge_execd(8)
controlling the job(s) does not respond to the delete request
sent by sge_qmaster(8).
Users which are neither Univa Grid Engine managers nor operators
can only use the -f option (for their own jobs) if the cluster
configuration entry qmaster_params contains the flag
ENABLE_FORCED_QDEL (see sge_conf(5)). However, behavior for
administrative and non-administrative users differs. Jobs are
deleted from the Univa Grid Engine database immediately in case
of administrators. Otherwise, a regular deletion is attempted
first and a forced cancellation is only executed if the regular
deletion was unsuccessful.
Additionally regular qdel requests can result in a forced dele-
tion of a job if ENABLE_FORCED_QDEL_IF_UNKNOWN is set in the
qmaster_params (see sge_conf(5))
-help Prints a listing of all options.
-t Deletes specified tasks of array job. It means tasks created by
qsub -t command. For example after creating array job by command
"qsub -t 1-100 $SGE_ROOT/examples/sleeper.sh" it is possible to
delete tasks 5-10 from job array by command "qdel job_id -t
5-10". All other tasks (1-4 and 11-100) will be executed.
Deletes only those jobs which were submitted by users specified
in the list of usernames. For managers it is possible to use
qdel -u "*" to delete all jobs of all users. If a manager wants
to delete a specific job of a user, he has to specify the user
and the job. If no job is specified all jobs from that user are
If set, specifies that debug information should be writ-
ten to stderr. In addition the level of detail in which
debug information is generated is defined.
If set, specifies the tcp port on which sge_qmaster(8)
is expected to listen for communication requests. Most
installations will use a services map entry for the ser-
vice "sge_qmaster" instead to define that port.
