condor_wait Wait - for jobs to finish
condor_wait [-help -version]
condor_wait[-debug] [-status] [-echo] [-wait seconds] [-num number-of-jobs]
condor_waitwatches a job event log file (created with the logcommand within a
submit description file) and returns when one or more jobs from the log have
completed or aborted.
Because condor_waitexpects to find at least one job submitted event in the log
file, at least one job must have been successfully submitted with
condor_submitbefore condor_waitis executed.
condor_waitwill wait forever for jobs to finish, unless a shorter wait time is
- Display usage information
- Display version information
- Show extra debugging information.
- Show job start and terminate information.
- Print the events out to stdout .
- Wait no more than the integer number of seconds. The
default is unlimited time.
- Wait for the integer number-of-jobsjobs to end. The default
is all jobs in the log file.
- The name of the log file to watch for information about the
- A specific job or set of jobs to watch. If the job IDis
only the job ClassAd attribute ClusterId , then condor_wait waits for all
jobs with the given ClusterId . If the job IDis a pair of the job ClassAd
attributes, given by ClusterId . ProcId , then condor_wait waits for the
specific job with this job ID. If this option is not specified, all jobs
that exist in the log file when condor_wait is invoked will be
condor_waitis an inexpensive way to test or wait for the completion of a job or
a whole cluster, if you are trying to get a process outside of HTCondor to
synchronize with a job or set of jobs.
It can also be used to wait for the completion of a limited subset of jobs, via
This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfile to complete.
condor_wait logfile 40
This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfile with a job ClassAd
attribute ClusterId of 40 to complete.
condor_wait -num 2 logfile
This command waits for any two jobs that exist in logfile to complete.
condor_wait logfile 40.1
This command waits for job 40.1 that exists in logfile to complete.
condor_wait -wait 3600 logfile 40.1
This waits for job 40.1 to complete by watching logfile , but it will not wait
more than one hour (3600 seconds).
condor_waitexits with 0 if and only if the specified job or jobs have completed
or aborted. condor_waitreturns 1 if unrecoverable errors occur, such as a
missing log file, if the job does not exist in the log file, or the
user-specified waiting time has expired.
