NOTE: The usage information that the HTCondor versions 7.7.3 and 7.7.4 condor_gather_info tool outputs is not quite correct. This manual page is more accurate for those releases.
condor_gather_info will collect and output information about the machine it is run upon, about the HTCondor installation local to the machine, and optionally about a specified HTCondor job. The information gathered by this tool is most often used as a debugging aid for the developers of HTCondor.
--jobid option, information about the
local machine and its HTCondor installation is gathered and
placed into the file called condor-profile.txt,
in the current working directory.
The information gathered is under the category of Identity.
additional information is gathered about the job given
in the command line argument and identified by
its ClusterId and ProcId ClassAd attributes.
The information includes both categories,
Identity and Job information.
As the quantity of information can be extensive,
this information is placed into a compressed tar file.
The file is placed into the current working directory,
and it is named using the format
cgi-<username>-jid<ClusterId>.<ProcId>-<year>-<month>-<day>-<hour>_<minute>_<second>-<TZ>.tar.gzAll values within
<>are substituted with current values. The building of this potentially large tar file can require a fair amount of temporary space. If the
--scratch option is specified, it identifies a directory in which to build the tar file. If the
--scratch option is not specified, then the directory will be /tmp/cgi-<PID>, where the process ID is that of the condor_gather_info executable.
The information gathered by this tool:
condor_gather_info will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
