Job cancellation

Can a job once submitted using batchsubmit to various venues be cancelled…? There seems to be a batchcancel command, but it doesn’t work… On NEEShub itself, the killall command works fine, but what about other venues like ranger, hansen, etc…?

    Hi Reagan, Please try the following format:

    Let’s say you received this message when you submitted the job with batchsubmit: “/home/neeshub/yourusename/scratch/openseesmp/job00052/LargeMP“ where “openseesmp” is your “jobtype” and “job00052” is your “jobname”. So, to cancel the above mentioned job, do the following: batchcancel —jobtype openseesmp —jobname job00052

    Thanks, —Tanzima

      Hi Tanzima… I’ve tried this before and get the following message: “Only jobs in SUBMITTED or STARTED state can be cancelled. Only PBS jobs can be cancelled. That is, osg and local jobs can not be cancelled.” This despite the job currently being in the SUBMITTED state on Steele.

        PS: I’d submitted a ticket regarding this and I got a reply saying that the batchcancel command currently does not work… (Ticket #4842)
