       condor_vacate - Vacate jobs that are running on the specified hosts


       condor_vacate [ -help -version ]

       condor_vacate    [   -graceful   -fast   ]   [   -debug   ]   [   -pool
       centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber] -name name ][ -addr  <a.b.c.d:port>
       ] ...  [ -all ]


       condor_vacate  causes Condor to checkpoint any running jobs on a set of
       machines and force the jobs to vacate the machine. The  job(s)  remains
       in the submitting machine’s job queue.

       Given  the (default) -graceful option, a job running under the standard
       universe will first produce a checkpoint  and  then  the  job  will  be
       killed.  Condor  will  then  restart  the job somewhere else, using the
       checkpoint to continue from where it left off. A job running under  the
       vanilla  universe  is  killed,  and  Condor  restarts  the job from the
       beginning somewhere else.  condor_vacate has no  effect  on  a  machine
       with no Condor job currently running.

       There  is generally no need for the user or administrator to explicitly
       run condor_vacate . Condor takes care of jobs in this way automatically
       following the policies given in configuration files.

          Inform the job to checkpoint, then soft-kill it.

       -pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]

          Specify a pool by giving the central  manager’s  host  name  and  an
          optional port number

       -name name

          Send the command to a machine identified by name


          Send the command to a machine identified by name

       -addr <a.b.c.d:port>

          Send the command to a machine’s master located at <a.b.c.d:port>


          Send the command to a machine located at <a.b.c.d:port>


          Send the command to all machines in the pool

Exit Status

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


       To send a condor_vacate command to two named machines:

       % condor_vacate  robin cardinal

       To send the condor_vacate  command  to  a  machine  within  a  pool  of
       machines  other than the local pool, use the -pool option. The argument
       is the name of the central manager for the pool. Note that one or  more
       machines  within  the  pool  must  be  specified as the targets for the
       command. This command sends the command to a the single  machine  named
       cae17  within  the pool of machines that has as its
       central manager:

       % condor_vacate -pool -name cae17
