2.3 Canceling Jobs

TORQUE allows users and administrators to cancel submitted jobs with the qdel command. The job will be sent TERM and KILL signals killing the running processes. When the top-level job script exits, the job will exit. The only parameter is the ID of the job to be canceled.

If a job is canceled by an operator or manager, an email notification will be sent to the user. Operators and managers may add a comment to this email with the -m option.
