[gridengine users] SIGKILL as last resort terminate_method

Yes, the admin user - it's called gridmgr in our installation.
I want to terminate the jobs in a special/controlled way if possible. As far as I've been able to deduce, the terminate method has been run under the admin user account while the actual job has been run under the submitting user's account. I'll try to verify that.

You want to drain the queue, or only terminate them in a special way? The terminate method is run under the user account, and hence he can kill his own job.

You mean the admin user(s) of SGE? Some create a special account like "sgeadmin" and group "gridware".
