I'm running some simulation by using the Linux cluster but I have some problem in my job.

I want to cancel any job(ID : 750, 752, 753 name : gib) but I don't know how to cancel this job.

Enclosed file is my job screen.enter image description here

    Which job control software is the cluster using? Google for qstat suggests it might be Sun Grid (then Oracle Grid, now Univa Grid) or Open Grid (a fork of that). – derobert Aug 6 '14 at 12:05
  • qstat, qdel... lizardite - amazing ore! – user44370 Aug 6 '14 at 12:08

You can kill a qstat process using the qdel command:

qdel *ID*

so in your case:

qdel 750

If it won't die, you can force kill using -f option:

qdel -f 750

    This is why I love this site. No question can be submitted that someone won't know how to answer. – Bratchley Aug 6 '14 at 12:32
  • This works though I got 'option "f" not found' adding -f to force killing the job. – Hamid Heydarian Jun 21 '19 at 12:43

To cancel the submitted job use the following command:

scancel jobid

    How a slurm manager command ( scancel ) is related to the POSIX batch queues? – grochmal Nov 9 '16 at 21:37
