condor_hold put - jobs in the queue into the hold state
condor_hold [-help -version] condor_hold[-debug] [-reason reasonstring] [-subcode number] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]-name scheddname][-addr "<a.b.c.d:port>"] cluster...cluster.process...user...-constraint expression... condor_hold[-debug] [-reason reasonstring] [-subcode number] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]-name scheddname][-addr "<a.b.c.d:port>"] -all
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_USERSmacro) 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.
-help Display usage information -version Display version information -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>" -debug 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 HoldReasonto 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 HoldReasonSubCodeto the integer value given by number. cluster Hold all jobs in the specified cluster cluster.process Hold the specific job in the cluster user 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. -all 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_hold command.
condor_holdwill exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
