       condor_vacate_job  finds one or more jobs from the Condor job queue and
       vacates them from the host(s) where they  are  currently  running.  The
       jobs remain in the job queue and return to the idle state.

       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 any other universe will be  sent  a  soft
       kill  signal  (SIGTERM  by  default,  or  whatever  is  defined  as the
       SoftKillSigin the job ClassAd), and Condor will restart  the  job  from
       the beginning somewhere else.

       If  the  -fast  option  is used, the job(s) will be immediately killed,
       meaning that standard universe jobs will not be allowed to  checkpoint,
       and  the  job  will have to revert to the last checkpoint or start over
       from the beginning.

       If the -name option is specified, the named condor_schedd  is  targeted
       for  processing.  If the -addr option is used, the condor_schedd at the
       given  address  is  targeted  for  processing.  Otherwise,  the   local
       condor_schedd is targeted. The jobs to be vacated 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 vacate the job.

       Using condor_vacate_job on jobs which are not currently running has  no

General Remarks

       Do not confuse condor_vacate_job with condor_vacate .  condor_vacate is
       given  a  list of hosts to vacate, regardless of what jobs happen to be
       running on them. Only machine owners and administrators have permission
       to   use   condor_vacate   to   evict   jobs   from   a   given   host.
       condor_vacate_job is given a list of job to vacate, regardless of which
       hosts they happen to be running on. Only the owner of the jobs or queue
       super users have permission to use condor_vacate_job .


       To vacate job 23.0:

       % condor_vacate_job 23.0

       To vacate all jobs of a user named Mary:

       % condor_vacate_job mary

       To vacate all standard universe jobs owned by Mary:

       % condor_vacate_job -constraint ’JobUniverse == 1 && Owner == "mary"’

       Note that the entire constraint, including the quotation marks, must be
       enclosed in single quote marks for most shells.

Exit Status

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