queue stop

Stop the DVC experiments task queue worker process.


usage: dvc queue stop [-h] [-q | -v] [--kill]


Stops all running task queue worker processes. Any queued experiment tasks which have not been run will remain in the queue (to be executed the next time that dvc queue start is run).

By default, DVC will wait for any experiment tasks which are currently running to complete before gracefully stopping any queue workers. The --kill option can be used to kill any currently running experiment tasks and stop the queue workers immediately.

Note that killed experiment tasks will be considered failed runs and will not be re-added to the queue for future execution.


  • --kill - kill any experiment tasks that are currently running and immediately stop queue execution.

  • -h, --help - prints the usage/help message, and exit.

  • -q, --quiet - do not write anything to standard output.

  • -v, --verbose - displays detailed tracing information.
