bmod jobs for per queue, or per user

Currently bmod runs per job so if there are 20000 running jobs, I've to run bmod 20000 times, one for each job. Can bmod have functionality like bkill to update bulk jobs , based on certain criteria like for user, queue, hostgroup etc ?

    We will consider this for inclusion in a future release.

    I believe bkill like options with bmod would help manage farms much better during downtimes.
    When there is a downtime, there is no concern of scheduling getting blocked.
    currently bmod can be run for one job at a time , I think it would help alot to run single bmod to update resources for all jobs of a given user or a given project or a given queue.

    Let me know if need more information.

    We're not clear whether you are looking for additional filters, or for bmod to take a list of job ids?

    "bmod" is a relatively expensive operation. Executing changes in bulk would block scheduling while those changes are applied.
