Stop job manager process


stopjobmanager -flags


stopjobmanager stops a job manager that is running under the mjs service.

The stopjobmanager executable resides in the folder matlabroot\toolbox\parallel\bin (Windows® operating system) or matlabroot/toolbox/parallel/bin (UNIX® operating system). Enter the following command syntax at a Windows or UNIX command-line prompt, respectively.

stopjobmanager -flags accepts the following input flags. Multiple flags can be used together on the same command.

-name <job_manager_name>Specifies the name of the job manager to stop. The default is the value of DEFAULT_JOB_MANAGER_NAME parameter the mjs_def file.
-remotehost <hostname>Specifies the name of the host where you want to stop the job manager and the associated job manager lookup process. The default value is the local host.
-cleanDeletes all checkpoint information stored on disk for the current instance of this job manager after stopping it. This cleans the job manager of all its job and task data.
-baseport <port_number>Specifies the base port that the mjs service on the remote host is using. You need to specify this only if the value of BASE_PORT in the local mjs_def file does not match the base port being used by the mjs service on the remote host.
-secretfile <path_to_shared_secret_file>Specifies the path to the shared secret file to use to authenticate the command. Use this flag to override the value of SHARED_SECRET_FILE in the local mjs_def file. If not specified, the command will attempt to use the path in the local mjs_def file or the default location:
-vVerbose mode displays the progress of the command execution.
