Delete lost tasks

Tasks were lost, but MyQueue still thinks they are there. This can happen if they were deleted with scancel, bkill or qdel instead of mq rm. Solution:

Remove many tasks

The mq rm command can read task ID’s from standard input:

$ cat ids | mq rm -i -
$ mq ls | grep <something> | mq rm -i -

Start from scratch

  • Remove your .myqueue/queue.json file.
