       qdel - delete Sun Grid Engine jobs from queues


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


       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 deletion of job(s). The job(s) are deleted from  the  list
              of  jobs  registered  at sge_qmaster(8) even if the sge_execd(8)
              controlling the job(s) does not respond to  the  delete  request
              sent by sge_qmaster(8).

              Users  which  are neither Sun 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  sge_conf(5)).   However,  behavior  for
              administrative  and  non-administrative  users differs. Jobs are
              deleted from the Sun 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.

              Additionally  regular  qdel  requests  can  result  in  a forced
              deletion of a job if ENABLE_FORCED_QDEL_IF_UNKNOWN is set in the
              qmaster_params (see sge_conf(5))

       -help  Prints a listing of all options.

       -t     Deletes  specified tasks of array job. It means tasks created by
              qsub -t command. For example after creating array job by command
              "qsub  -t 1-100 $SGE_ROOT/examples/" it is possible to
              delete tasks 5-10 from job array  by  command  "qdel  job_id  -t
              5-10".  All other tasks (1-4 and 11-100) will be executed.

       -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

              A list of jobs, which should be deleted


       SGE_ROOT       Specifies the location of the Sun Grid  Engine  standard
                      configuration files.

       SGE_CELL       If  set,  specifies the default Sun Grid Engine cell. To
                      address a Sun Grid Engine cell qdel uses (in  the  order
                      of precedence):

                             The name of the cell specified in the environment
                             variable SGE_CELL, if it is set.

                             The name of the default cell, i.e. default.

                      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  sge_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.
