scancel is a scheduler command that cancels a SLURM job.


Documentation is available on the system using the command

$ man scancel


Sometimes you may need to stop a job while it’s running.

You can stop jobs with the scancel command and the job’s ID (replacing job-id with the number):

$ scancel job-id

To cancel multiple jobs you can supply a comma separated list:

$ scancel job-id1, job-id2, job-id3
