I have a job that is stranded. What does that mean? How do I get rid of it?
Stranded jobs are those with which Job Control has lost contact. This may be due to a prolonged network outage, or a reboot of the machine where the job is running. Since the actual status of the job cannot be determined, you must first try to recover the job:
$SCHRODINGER/jobcontrol -recover JobId
where JobId is the actual Schrodinger JobId for that job. If Job Control detects that the job is still running, the status will change to
running. Otherwise, it will go to
completed:finished, depending on what Job Control can determine about the job.
Note that stranded jobs cannot be killed by Job Control because the status of the job is unknown. You must always first attempt to recover the job, and then you take further action (e.g. kill, delete, etc.)
