condor_ qedit modifies job attributes in the Condor job queue. The jobs are specified either by cluster number, cluster.proc job ID, owner, or by a ClassAd constraint expression. The attribute-value may be any ClassAd expression (integer, floating point number, string, expression).
% condor_qedit -name north.cs.wisc.edu -pool condor.cs.wisc.edu 249.0 answer 42 Set attribute "answer". % condor_qedit -name perdita 1849.0 In '"myinput"' Set attribute "In". % condor_qedit jbasney NiceUser TRUE Set attribute "NiceUser". % condor_qedit -constraint 'JobUniverse == 1' Requirements '(Arch == "INTEL") && (OpSys == "SOLARIS26") && (Disk >= ExecutableSize) && (VirtualMemory >= ImageSize)' Set attribute "Requirements".
Strings must be specified with quotes (for example, '"String"').
If a job is currently running, modified attributes for that job will not take effect until the job restarts. For example, attempting to modify PeriodicRemove to affect when a running job will be removed from the queue will not affect the job, unless the job happens to be evicted from a machine and returns to the queue to be run again later. This is also true for other expressions, such as PeriodicHold, PeriodicRelease, and so forth.
condor_ qedit will not allow modification of the following attributes to ensure security and correctness: Owner, ClusterId, ProcId, MyType, TargetType, and JobStatus.
Please use condor_ hold to place a job in the hold state, and use condor_ release to release a held job, instead of attempting to modify JobStatus directly.
condor_ qedit will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
