AbortKernels

AbortKernels[]

aborts evaluations running in all parallel subkernels.

Details

  • AbortKernels[] attempts to put subkernels in a state suitable for new evaluations and verifies communications links to them. Any subkernel that does not respond is removed from the list of available subkernels as given by Kernels[].

Basic Examples  (1)

Applications  (2)

Scheduled evaluations that are no longer needed can be aborted with AbortKernels:

Find such that is prime, scheduling one search loop for each kernel:

Run them until manually aborted, and clean up by aborting all parallel kernels:

Properties & Relations  (2)

ParallelTry is essentially implemented in terms of WaitNext and AbortKernels:

If aborting fails, kernels can often be closed and reopened:
