NAME

       qdel - delete Grid Engine jobs from queues

SYNTAX

       qdel [-f] [-help] [-u wc_user_list] [wc_job_range_list] [-t task_id_range]

DESCRIPTION

       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. A manager using a job name or pattern 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(5).

OPTIONS

       -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 who are neither 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,   the   behavior   for
              administrative and non-administrative users differs. Jobs are deleted from the Grid
              Engine database immediately in the 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 deletion  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  an  array job. It means tasks created by the qsub -t
              command. For example, after creating an array job with the command "qsub  -t  1-100
              $SGE_ROOT/examples/sleeper.sh"  it  is  possible  to delete tasks 5-10 from the job
              array with the command "qdel job_id -t 5-10".  All other  tasks  (1-4  and  11-100)
              will be executed.

       -u wc_user_list
              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 deleted.

       wc_job_range_list
              A list of jobs which should be deleted.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       SGE_ROOT       Specifies the location of the Grid Engine standard configuration files.

       SGE_CELL       If set, specifies the default Grid Engine cell. To address  a  Grid  Engine
                      cell qdel uses (in the order of precedence):

                             The name of the cell specified in the environment variable SGE_CELL,
                             if it is set.

                             The name of the default cell, i.e. default.

       SGE_DEBUG_LEVEL
                      If set, specifies that debug information should be written  to  stderr.  In
                      addition  the  level  of  detail in which debug information is generated is
                      defined.

       SGE_QMASTER_PORT
                      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 service "sge_qmaster" instead to define that port.
