3. Did You Know: checkjob

If a user or admin sees a problem with a job (i.e. the job is not running when you think it should) they should use checkjob. checkjob displays detailed job state information and diagnostic output for a specified job. Detailed information is available for queued, blocked, active, and recently completed jobs. 

Using checkjob –v will give more detailed information regarding the job. Or, if you’re wondering why a job isn’t running on a particular node you can use checkjob –n to get information on jobs specific to a node. 

For more information on checkjob go to: http://www.clusterresources.com/products/mwm/docs/commands/checkjob.shtml
