Forcibly kill or purge the Job in the Torque Scheduler


When there is a job stuck and cannot be remove by a normal qdel, you can use the command qdel -p jobid. Do note that this command should be used when there is no other way to kill off the job in the usual fashion especially if the compute node is unresponsive.

# qdel -p jobID
