- list of jobids and/or jobnames
The arckill command kills a running job on an ARC enabled resource. The job can be referred to either by the jobid that was returned by arcsub(1) at submission time or by its jobname if the job description that was submitted contained a jobname attribute.
More than one jobid and/or jobname can be given. If several jobs were submitted with the same jobname all those jobs are killed. If the --joblist option is used the list of jobs is read from a file with the specified filename. By specifying the --all option, all jobs can be killed.
The --cluster option can be used to select or reject jobs at specific clusters. See arcsub(1) for a discussion of the format of arguments to this option. The --status option can be used to select jobs in a specific state. These options can be repeated several times. See arstat(1) for possible state values.
If the job was successfully killed the attepmt to remove the job from the remote cluster will be made unless the --keep option was specified. Depending on functionality of service job killing procedure may take time and it may be impossible to clean job immediately. In that case arckill will report number of cleaned jobs smaller than processed ones. Cleaning of leftover jobs may be performed by running arcclean later.
Some options can be given default values by specifying them in the
ARC client configuration file. By using the
option a different configuration file can be used than the default.
This a local list of the user's active jobs. When a job is
successfully submitted it is added to this list and when it is removed
from the remote cluster it is removed from this list. This list is
used as the list of all active jobs when the user specifies the
option to the various NorduGrid ARC user interface commands. By using the
option a different file can be used than the default.
The location of the user's Grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless
the proxy is in a non-standard location.
The location where ARC is installed can be specified by this variable. If not
specified the install location will be determined from the path to the
command being executed, and if this fails a WARNING will be given stating the
location which will be used.
The location of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable. Multiple
locations can be specified by separating them by : (; in Windows). The
default location is $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in Windows).
