» Command: job stop
job stop command is used to stop a running job and signals the scheduler
to cancel all of the running allocations.
nomad job stop [options] <job>
job stop command requires a single argument, specifying the job ID or prefix to
cancel. If there is an exact match based on the provided job ID or prefix, then
the job will be cancelled. Otherwise, a list of matching jobs and information
will be displayed.
Stop will issue a request to deregister the matched job and then invoke an interactive monitor that exits automatically once the scheduler has processed the request. It is safe to exit the monitor early using ctrl+c.
