       Qdel provides a means for a user/operator/manager to delete one or more
       jobs. A manager/operator can delete jobs belonging to any user, while a
       regular user can only delete his or her own jobs.  If a  manager  wants
       to  delete  another  user's job, the manager can specify the job id. If
       the manager is using a job name or pattern, he or she must also specify
       the user's name via "-u wc_user_list". A "qdel wc_job_name" will delete
       only the jobs of the calling user by default.  Qdel deletes jobs in the
       order  in  which  their  job identifiers are presented. Find additional
       information concerning wc_user_list and wc_job_list in sge_types(1).

       -f     Force deletion of job(s). The job(s) are deleted from  the  list
              of  jobs  registered  at sge_qmaster(8) even if the sge_execd(8)
              controlling the job(s) does not respond to  the  delete  request
              sent by sge_qmaster(8).

              Users which are neither Univa Grid Engine managers nor operators
              can only use the -f option (for their own jobs) if  the  cluster
              configuration    entry    qmaster_params   contains   the   flag
              ENABLE_FORCED_QDEL (see  sge_conf(5)).   However,  behavior  for
              administrative  and  non-administrative  users differs. Jobs are
              deleted from the Univa Grid Engine database immediately in  case
              of  administrators.  Otherwise,  a regular deletion is attempted
              first and a forced cancellation is only executed if the  regular
              deletion was unsuccessful.

              Additionally  regular qdel requests can result in a forced dele-
              tion of a job if ENABLE_FORCED_QDEL_IF_UNKNOWN  is  set  in  the
              qmaster_params (see sge_conf(5))

       -help  Prints a listing of all options.

       -t     Deletes  specified tasks of array job. It means tasks created by
              qsub -t command. For example after creating array job by command
              "qsub  -t 1-100 $SGE_ROOT/examples/" it is possible to
              delete tasks 5-10 from job array  by  command  "qdel  job_id  -t
              5-10".  All other tasks (1-4 and 11-100) will be executed.

       -u wc_user_list
              Deletes  only those jobs which were submitted by users specified
              in the list of usernames.  For managers it is  possible  to  use
              qdel  -u "*" to delete all jobs of all users. If a manager wants
              to delete a specific job of a user, he has to specify  the  user
              and  the job. If no job is specified all jobs from that user are


                      If set, specifies that debug information should be writ-
                      ten  to stderr. In addition the level of detail in which
                      debug information is generated is defined.

                      If set, specifies the tcp port on  which  sge_qmaster(8)
                      is  expected to listen for communication requests.  Most
                      installations will use a services map entry for the ser-
                      vice "sge_qmaster" instead to define that port.
