I assume that all the slots on your pool are already busy, else this queued job would soon start running....
So I thus assume what you want to do is run this job instead of some other job that is currently running.
Administrators have the power to do this! :)Â Specifically, users specified in the condor_config with QUEUE_SUPER_USERS
have the power... by default user root and user condor are QUEUE_SUPER_USERS.
The solution is to use the condor_now tool.Â On your submit host (where the schedd runs), su to root (or to any other
QUEUE_SUPER_USER), and then run condor_now with the job_id of the important job you want to run now, and the job_id you
want to vacate and give the resources to your important job.Â ÂDo "man condor_now" for details, or see
Hope this helps,
