NAME

       qdel - delete Grid Engine jobs from queues

SYNTAX

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

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.  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).

OPTIONS

       -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
              deleted.

       wc_job_range_list
              A list of jobs, which should be deleted

ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES

       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
                      precedence):

                             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.

       GE_QMASTER_PORT
                      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.
