Description

       condor_rmremoves one or more jobs from the HTCondor  job  queue.  If  the  -nameoption  is
       specified,  the  named  condor_scheddis  targeted  for  processing.  Otherwise,  the local
       condor_scheddis targeted. The jobs to be  removed  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 remove the job.

       When removing a grid job, the job may remain in the &ldquo;X&rdquo; state for a very  long
       time.  This is normal, as HTCondor is attempting to communicate with the remote scheduling
       system, ensuring that the job has been properly cleaned up. If it takes too  long,  or  in
       rare circumstances is never removed, the job may be forced to leave the job queue by using
       the -forcexoption. This forcibly removes  jobs  that  are  in  the  &ldquo;X&rdquo;  state
       without attempting to finish any clean up at the remote scheduler.

Options

       -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.

       -forcex

          Force the immediate local removal of jobs in the 'X' state (only affects  jobs  already
          being removed)

       cluster

          Remove all jobs in the specified cluster

       cluster.process

       user

       -constraint expression

          Remove all jobs which match the job ClassAd expression constraint

       -all

          Remove all the jobs in the queue

General Remarks

       Use  the  -forcexargument  with  caution,  as  it  will  remove  jobs from the local queue
       immediately, but can orphan parts of the job that are running remotely and  have  not  yet
       been stopped or removed.

Examples

       For a user to remove all their jobs that are not currently running:

       % condor_rm  -constraint 'JobStatus =!= 2'

Exit Status

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