Our AtoM has several jobs in a "Running" state, dating back to 2021-04-28. This is according to the index.php/jobs/browse page.

Every time the server is rebooted, the atom-worker service needs to be restarted (presumably because it's hitting the 3-retry timeout?). Is there a way to cancel/remove those long-running, no-longer-needed jobs?

On a related note, is there a way to clear inactive jobs for the 'Command line' user, or other users that are no longer active?

AtoM: 2.6.4 - 184
Server: Ubuntu 18.04 (VM in vSphere)

And of course I find the answer right after posting for help. Should have searched for 'jobs' instead of 'Gearman'
