Description

condor_rmremoves one or more jobs from the HTCondor job queue. If the -nameoption is specified, the named condor_scheddis targeted for processing. Otherwise, the local condor_scheddis 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_USERS macro) 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 HTCondor 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 -forcexoption. This forcibly removes jobs that are in the “X” state without attempting to finish any clean up at the remote scheduler.

Options

Display usage information

-version

Display version information

-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]

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

-name scheddname

Send the command to a machine identified by scheddname

-addr a.b.c.d:port

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

-debug

Causes debugging information to be sent to  stderr , based on the value of the configuration variable  TOOL_DEBUG .

-forcex

Force the immediate local removal of jobs in the 'X' state (only affects jobs already being removed)

cluster

Remove all jobs in the specified cluster

cluster.process

Remove the specific job in the cluster

user

Remove jobs belonging to specified user

-constraint expression

Remove all jobs which match the job ClassAd expression constraint

-all

Remove all the jobs in the queue

General Remarks

Use the -forcexargument with caution, as it will remove jobs from the local queue immediately, but can orphan parts of the job that are running remotely and have not yet been stopped or removed.

Examples

For a user to remove all their jobs that are not currently running:

% condor_rm -constraint 'JobStatus =!= 2'

Exit Status

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