QMOVE(1P)                 POSIX Programmer's Manual                QMOVE(1P)

PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       qmove — move batch jobs

SYNOPSIS         top

       qmove destination job_identifier...

DESCRIPTION         top

       To move a batch job is to remove the batch job from the batch queue
       in which it resides and instantiate the batch job in another batch
       queue.  A batch job is moved by a request to the batch server that
       manages the batch job. The qmove utility is a user-accessible batch
       client that requests the movement of one or more batch jobs.

       The qmove utility shall move those batch jobs, and only those batch
       jobs, for which a batch job_identifier is presented to the utility.

       The qmove utility shall move batch jobs in the order in which the
       corresponding batch job_identifiers are presented to the utility.

       If the qmove utility fails to process a batch job_identifier
       successfully, the utility shall proceed to process the remaining
       batch job_identifiers, if any.

       The qmove utility shall move batch jobs by sending a Move Job Request
       to the batch server that manages each batch job. The qmove utility
       shall not exit before the batch jobs corresponding to all
       successfully processed batch job_identifiers have been moved.

OPTIONS         top

       None.

OPERANDS         top

       The qmove utility shall accept one operand that conforms to the
       syntax for a destination (see Section 3.3.2, Destination).

       The qmove utility shall accept one or more operands that conform to
       the syntax for a batch job_identifier (see Section 3.3.1, Batch Job
       Identifier).

STDIN         top

       Not used.

INPUT FILES         top

       None.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES         top

       The following environment variables shall affect the execution of
       qmove:

       LANG      Provide a default value for the internationalization
                 variables that are unset or null. (See the Base Definitions
                 volume of POSIX.1‐2008, Section 8.2, Internationalization
                 Variables the precedence of internationalization variables
                 used to determine the values of locale categories.)

       LC_ALL    If set to a non-empty string value, override the values of
                 all the other internationalization variables.

       LC_CTYPE  Determine the locale for the interpretation of sequences of
                 bytes of text data as characters (for example, single-byte
                 as opposed to multi-byte characters in arguments).

       LC_MESSAGES
                 Determine the locale that should be used to affect the
                 format and contents of diagnostic messages written to
                 standard error.

       LOGNAME   Determine the login name of the user.

ASYNCHRONOUS EVENTS         top

       Default.

STDOUT         top

       None.

STDERR         top

       The standard error shall be used only for diagnostic messages.

OUTPUT FILES         top

       None.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION         top

       None.

EXIT STATUS         top

       The following exit values shall be returned:

        0    Successful completion.

       >0    An error occurred.

CONSEQUENCES OF ERRORS         top

       In addition to the default behavior, the qmove utility shall not be
       required to write a diagnostic message to standard error when the
       error reply received from a batch server indicates that the batch
       job_identifier does not exist on the server. Whether or not the qmove
       utility waits to output the diagnostic message while attempting to
       locate the job on other servers is implementation-defined.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE         top

       None.

EXAMPLES         top

       None.

RATIONALE         top

       The qmove utility allows users to move jobs between queues.

       The alternative to using the qmove utility—deleting the batch job and
       requeuing it—entails considerably more typing.

       Since the means of selecting jobs based on attributes has been
       encapsulated in the qselect utility, the only option of the qmove
       utility concerns authorization. The −u option provides the user with
       the convenience of changing the user identifier under which the batch
       job will execute. Minimalism and consistency have taken precedence
       over convenience; the −u option has been deleted because the
       equivalent capability exists with the −u option of the qalter
       utility.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top

       The qmove utility may be removed in a future version.
