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



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

NAME
       qmove - move batch jobs

SYNOPSIS
       qmove destination job_identifier ...

DESCRIPTION
       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 pre-
       sented 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
       None.

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

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

STDIN
       Not used.

INPUT FILES
       None.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       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 IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Section 8.2, Internationalization Variables for the prece-
              dence 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 exam-
              ple, 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  writ-
              ten to standard error.

       LOGNAME
              Determine the login name of the user.


ASYNCHRONOUS EVENTS
       Default.

STDOUT
       None.

STDERR
       The standard error shall be used only for diagnostic messages.

OUTPUT FILES
       None.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
       None.

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values shall be returned:

        0     Successful completion.

       >0     An error occurred.


CONSEQUENCES OF ERRORS
       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 attempt-
       ing to locate the job on other servers is implementation-defined.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

EXAMPLES
       None.

RATIONALE
       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
       None.
