       condor_rm  removes  one  or more jobs from the Condor job queue. If the
       -name option is specified, the  named  condor_schedd  is  targeted  for
       processing. Otherwise, the local condor_schedd is 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 ‘‘X’’ state for a
       very long time. This is normal, as Condor 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 -forcex option. This forcibly removes jobs that are  in  the  ‘‘X’’
       state  without  attempting  to  finish  any  clean  up  at  the  remote

       -constraint expression

          Remove all jobs which match the job ClassAd expression constraint


          Remove all the jobs in the queue

General Remarks

       Use  the -forcex argument with caution, as it will remove jobs from the
       local queue immediately, but can ‘‘orphan’’ parts of the job  that  are
       running remotely and haven’t yet been stopped or removed.


       To remove all jobs of a user named Mary that are not currently running:

       % condor_rm Mary -constraint Activity!=

       for most shells.

Exit Status

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