Having a bunch of jobs in the cluster, it's for now possible to kill them via wildcards "qdel Gaussian_CrO2*" (whether they are tied togehther by hold_jid or not). Sometimes you want to handle this 
more easily by some kind of "@jobgroup".

$ qsub -cg @myjobgroup myjob # create a jobgroup @myjobgroup and submit job.

    (Also called auto create group. When no job is left in the @jobgroup, the @jobgroup is removed automatically. Option "-cg auto" should create a random uniq jobgroup, maybe with option -
tersegroup to output the @jobgroup name only for batch processing.)

$ qsub -g @myjobgroup myjob # submit a job bound to a jobgroup.

    (Will use an already existing jobgroup. Or maybe -gu for user's group, -gp for project's group)

$ qsub -gh @myjobgroup myjob # submit a job to a jobgroup and add all right now exsiting jobs in this @jobgroup to hold_jobid -"group hold")

    (Will use an already existing jobgroup.)

$ qgsub @myjobgroup

    (Will request a permanent job group [maybe tied to user/project/department]. - "Your jobgroup request @myjobgroup has been granted".)

$ qgdel @myjobgroup

    (Will remove a permanent jobgroup.)

$qdel @myjobgroup

    (Will kill all jobs inside the job group. Only for auto created @jobgroups the @jobgroup will vanish afterwards.)

$qalter -g "" <jobid>

    (Remove the binding to a group. [-gu-gp like above])

$ qalter -g @mygroup <jobid>

    (Bind a job to a group. [-gu-gp like above]))
