If you need to delete a job from the queue, first load the shared and Torque modules:

module load shared
module load torque/6.0.2

Then you can issue the following command to delete a job:

qdel <jobname>

If you are unsure of what your job's name is, you can check the name of all the jobs you have in the queue with qstat:

qstat -u <your_username>
