The QCLOSE.EXE command closes a queue. When a queue is closed, it will not accept jobs that are submitted to it.
QCLOSE.EXE QueueName /SERVER=ServerName
This specifies the name of an Argent Queue Engine server. If this qualifier is absent, then the command uses the value of the XS_SERVER environment variable, if defined. If this environment variable is also absent, then the command assumes the local server.
