          qsig - signal batch job

          qsig [-s signal] job_identifier ...

          The qsig command requests that a signal be sent to executing
          batch jobs.  The signal is sent to the session leader of the

          If the -s option is not specified, `SIGTERM' is sent.  The
          request to signal a batch job will be rejected if:

          -    The user is not authorized to signal the job.

          -    The job is not in the running state.

          -    The requested signal is not supported by the system
               upon which the job is executing.

          The qsig command sends a Signal Job batch request to the
          server which owns the job.

          -s signal  Declares which signal is sent to the job.

                  The signal argument is either a signal name,
                  e.g.  SIGKILL, the signal name without the
                  SIG prefix, e.g. KILL, or a unsigned signal
                  number, e.g. 9.  The signal name SIGNULL is
                  allowed; the server will send the signal 0 to
                  the job which will have no effect.  Not all
                  signal names will be recognized by qsig. If
                  it doesn't recognize the signal name, try
                  issuing the signal number instead.

                  For Unicos on Cray systems only, two special
                  signal names, "suspend" and "resume", are
                  used to suspend and resume jobs.  When
                  suspended, a job continues to occupy system
                  resources but is not executing and is not
                  charged for walltime.  Manager or operator
                  privilege is required to suspend or resume a

          The qsig command accepts one or more job_identifier operands
          of the form: sequence_number[.server_name][@server]

          The qsig command will write a diagnostic messages to
          standard error for each error occurrence.

          Upon successful processing of all the operands presented to
          the qsig command, the exit status will be a value of zero.

          If the qsig command fails to process any operand, the
          command exits with a value greater than zero.
