qbremove - howto ?
« on: May 03, 2010, 02:05:28 PM »
for example i want to remove all jobs in state "killed":

Code: [Select]
#/Applications/pfx/qube/bin/qbjobs -u all
total: 0/37 cpu(s)      0/2640 work
%    id   pid  pgrp  label  status    user  type  name                               cpus  priority  cluster  groups
 12  333  1    333   qube1  killed    node1   maya  no vis                             0/2   9999      /

after reading "qbremove -h" I would do it like that:

Code: [Select]
#/Applications/pfx/qube/bin/qbremove --killed 0
removed job: nothing

... result "removed job nothing"

.. searching this forum, found some entries about "qbjobs" stating "qbjobs -u all" would list all jobs. tried it with qbremove:

Code: [Select]
# /Applications/pfx/qube/bin/qbremove --killed -u all 0
removed job: 333-337,339,346-349

... why ist the "-u all" mandatory to get it working?

Qube Version: 5.5-2

By default most of the utilities (qbjobs and qbremove, qbmodify, etc.) only list/remove/modify jobs belonging to the current user.

ok, it would be nice if it would be stated in the help text (and documentation too!), that it will only operate on the own user if not giving "--user" als command line option.

thanks!
