# Managing jobs¶

The lifecycle of a job can be managed with as little as three different commands:

1. Submit the job with sbatch <script_name>.
2. Check the job status with squeue. (to limit the display to only your jobs use squeue -u <user_name>.)
3. (optional) Delete the job with scancel <job_id>.

You can also hold the start of a job:

scontrol hold <job_id>
Put a hold on the job. A job on hold will not start or block other jobs from starting until you release the hold.
scontrol release <job_id>
Release the hold on a job.
