       qdel - delete Grid Engine jobs from queues


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


       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  action  for running jobs. The job(s) are deleted from the
              list of jobs registered at ge_qmaster(8) even if the ge_execd(8)
              controlling  the  job(s)  does not respond to the delete request
              sent by ge_qmaster(8).

       Users which 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  ge_conf(5)).
       However,  behavior  for  administrative  and  non-administrative  users
       differs. Jobs are deleted from the 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.

       -help  Prints a listing of all options.

       -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

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

       GE_CELL        If  set,  specifies  the  default  Grid  Engine cell. To
                      address a Grid Engine cell qdel uses (in  the  order  of

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

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

       GE_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.

                      If set, specifies the tcp port on which ge_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.
