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.
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_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.
