Job not Exiting

A user is facing always an issue with job exiting, after successful completion of the wall time of a job i.e. 24hrs or 72hrs job is not getting exit and stays on R state, this issue is facing only one particular user. Other jobs are get exited after completion of requested wall time.

Request anyone to give a solution for the above issue to resolve.


  1. check his job script of that specific user
  2. check and share tracejob output of this specific user job
  3. check the job information in the compute nodes ( $PBS_HOME/mom_logs/YYYYMMDD)
  4. check the difference in qstat -fx output of this specific user job and other jobs that exited correctly
