Force job execution

A pending job can be forced to run with the brun command. This operation can only be performed by an LSF administrator.

You can force a job to run on a particular host, to run until completion, and other restrictions. For more information, see the brun command.

When a job is forced to run, any other constraints that are associated with the job such as resource requirements or dependency conditions are ignored.

In this situation you may see some job slot limits, such as the maximum number of jobs that can run on a host, being violated. A job that is forced to run cannot be preempted.
