       condor_hold put - jobs in the queue into the hold state

       condor_holdplaces jobs from the HTCondor job queue in the hold state. If  the  -nameoption
       is  specified,  the  named  condor_scheddis  targeted for processing. Otherwise, the local
       condor_scheddis targeted. The  jobs  to  be  held  are  identified  by  one  or  more  job
       identifiers,  as  described  below. For any given job, only the owner of the job or one of
       the queue super users (defined by the  QUEUE_SUPER_USERS macro) can place the job on hold.

       A job in the hold state remains in the job queue, but the job will not run until  released
       with condor_release.

       A currently running job that is placed in the hold state by condor_holdis sent a hard kill
       signal. For a standard universe job, this means that the job is removed from  the  machine
       without allowing a checkpoint to be produced first.

       -pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]

          Specify a pool by giving the central manager's host name and an optional port number

       -name scheddname

          Send the command to a machine identified by scheddname

       -addr <a.b.c.d:port>

          Send the command to a machine located at "<a.b.c.d:port>"


          Causes  debugging  information  to  be  sent  to   stderr  ,  based on the value of the
          configuration variable  TOOL_DEBUG .

       -reason reasonstring

          Sets the job  ClassAd  attribute   HoldReason  to  the  value  given  by  reasonstring.
          reasonstringwill be delimited by double quote marks on the command line, if it contains
          space characters.

       -subcode number

          Sets the job ClassAd attribute  HoldReasonSubCode to the integer value given by number.


          Hold all jobs in the specified cluster


          Hold the specific job in the cluster


          Hold all jobs belonging to specified user

       -constraint expression

          Hold all jobs which match the  job  ClassAd  expression  constraint  (within  quotation
          marks).  Note  that  quotation  marks must be escaped with the backslash characters for
          most shells.


          Hold all the jobs in the queue

       To place on hold all jobs (of the user that issued the condor_hold command) that  are  not
       currently running:

       % condor_hold  -constraint "JobStatus!=2"

       Multiple  options within the same command cause the union of all jobs that meet either (or
       both) of the options to be placed in the hold state. Therefore, the command

       % condor_hold  Mary -constraint "JobStatus!=2"

       places all of Mary's queued jobs into the hold state, and the constraint holds all  queued
       jobs  not  currently  running. It also sends a hard kill signal to any of Mary's jobs that
       are currently running. Note that the jobs specified by the constraint will also be  Mary's
       jobs, if it is Mary that issues this example condor_holdcommand.

Exit Status

       condor_holdwill  exit  with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with
       the value 1 (one) upon failure.
