Synopsis

condor_suspend[-help -version]

condor_suspend[-debug] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]-name scheddname][-addr "a.b.c.d:port"] cluster cluster.process user -constraint expression-all

Description

condor_suspendsuspends one or more jobs from the HTCondor job queue. When a job is suspended, the match between the condor_scheddand machine is not been broken, such that the claim is still valid. But, the job is not making any progress and HTCondor is no longer generating a load on the machine. If the -nameoption is specified, the named condor_scheddis targeted for processing. Otherwise, the local condor_scheddis targeted. The job(s) to be suspended are identified by one of the 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 suspend the job.
