Description

condor_submit_dag is the program for submitting a DAG (directed acyclic graph) of jobs for execution under HTCondor. The program enforces the job dependencies defined in one or more DAGInputFiles. Each DAGInputFile contains commands to direct the submission of jobs implied by the nodes of a DAG to HTCondor. See the HTCondor User Manual, section 2.10 for a complete description.

Options

-help
Display usage information.
-version
Display version information.
-no_submit
Produce the HTCondor submit description file for DAGMan, but do not submit DAGMan as an HTCondor job.
-verbose
Cause condor_submit_dag to give verbose error messages.
-force
Require condor_submit_dag to overwrite the files that it produces, if the files already exist. Note that dagman.out will be appended to, not overwritten. If new-style rescue DAG mode is in effect, and any new-style rescue DAGs exist, the -force flag will cause them to be renamed, and the original DAG will be run. If old-style rescue DAG mode is in effect, any existing old-style rescue DAGs will be deleted, and the original DAG will be run. Section 2.10.8 details rescue DAGs.
-maxidle NumberOfJobs
Sets the maximum number of idle jobs allowed before condor_dagman stops submitting more jobs. Once idle jobs start to run, condor_dagman will resume submitting jobs. NumberOfJobs is a positive integer. If the option is omitted, the number of idle jobs is unlimited. Note that for this argument, each individual process within a cluster counts as a job, which is inconsistent with -maxjobs . Nothing special is done to the submit description file. Setting queue 5000 in the submit description file, where -maxidle is set to 250 will result in a cluster of 5000 new jobs being submitted to the condor_schedd. In this case, condor_dagman will resume submitting jobs when the number of idle jobs falls below 250.
-maxjobs NumberOfJobs
Sets the maximum number of jobs within the DAG that will be submitted to HTCondor at one time. NumberOfJobs is a positive integer. If the option is omitted, the default number of jobs is unlimited. Note that for this argument, each cluster counts as one job, no matter how many individual processes are in the cluster.
-dagman DagmanExecutable
Allows the specification of an alternate condor_dagman executable to be used instead of the one found in the user's path. This must be a fully qualified path.
-maxpre NumberOfPREscripts
Sets the maximum number of PRE scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPREScripts is a positive integer. If this option is omitted, the default number of PRE scripts is unlimited.
-maxpost NumberOfPOSTscripts
Sets the maximum number of POST scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPOSTScripts is a positive integer. If this option is omitted, the default number of POST scripts is unlimited.
-notification value
Sets the e-mail notification for DAGMan itself. This information will be used within the HTCondor submit description file for DAGMan. This file is produced by condor_submit_dag. See notification within the section of submit description file commands in the condor_submit manual page on page [*] for specification of value.
-noeventchecks
This argument is no longer used; it is now ignored. Its functionality is now implemented by the DAGMAN_ALLOW_EVENTS configuration macro (see section 3.3.25).
-allowlogerror
This optional argument has condor_dagman try to run the specified DAG, even in the case of detected errors in the user log specification. As of version 7.3.2, this argument has an effect only on DAGs containing Stork job nodes.
-r schedd_name
Submit condor_dagman to a remote machine, specifically the condor_schedd daemon on that machine. The condor_dagman job will not run on the local condor_schedd (the submit machine), but on the specified one. This is implemented using the -remote option to condor_submit. Note that this option does not currently specify input files for condor_dagman, nor the individual nodes to be taken along! It is assumed that any necessary files will be present on the remote computer, possibly via a shared file system between the local computer and the remote computer. It is also necessary that the user has appropriate permissions to submit a job to the remote machine; the permissions are the same as those required to use condor_submit's -remote option. If other options are desired, including transfer of other input files, consider using the -no_submit option, modifying the resulting submit file for specific needs, and then using condor_submit on that.
-debug level
Passes the the level of debugging output desired to condor_dagman. level is an integer, with values of 0-7 inclusive, where 7 is the most verbose output. See the condor_dagman manual page on page [*] for detailed descriptions of these values. If not specified, no -debug value is passed to condor_dagman.
-usedagdir
This optional argument causes condor_dagman to run each specified DAG as if condor_submit_dag had been run in the directory containing that DAG file. This option is most useful when running multiple DAGs in a single condor_dagman. Note that the -usedagdir flag must not be used when running an old-style rescue DAG (see section 2.10.8).
-outfile_dir directory
Specifies the directory in which the .dagman.out file will be written. The directory may be specified relative to the current working directory as condor_submit_dag is executed, or specified with an absolute path. Without this option, the .dagman.out file is placed in the same directory as the first DAG input file listed on the command line.
-config ConfigFileName
Specifies a configuration file to be used for this DAGMan run. Note that the options specified in the configuration file apply to all DAGs if multiple DAGs are specified. Further note that it is a fatal error if the configuration file specified by this option conflicts with a configuration file specified in any of the DAG files, if they specify one. For more information about how condor_dagman configuration files work, see section 2.10.7.
-insert_sub_file FileName
Specifies a file to insert into the .condor.sub file created by condor_submit_dag. The specified file must contain only legal submit file commands. Only one file can be inserted. (If both the DAGMAN_INSERT_SUB_FILE configuration variable and -insert_sub_file are specified, -insert_sub_file overrides DAGMAN_INSERT_SUB_FILE.) The specified file is inserted into the .condor.sub file before the Queue command and before any commands specified with the -append option.
-append Command
Specifies a command to append to the .condor.sub file created by condor_submit_dag. The specified command is appended to the .condor.sub file immediately before the Queue command. Multiple commands are specified by using the -append option multiple times. Each new command is given in a separate -append option. Commands with spaces in them must be enclosed in double quotes. Commands specified with the -append option are appended to the .condor.sub file after commands inserted from a file specified by the -insert_sub_file option or the DAGMAN_INSERT_SUB_FILE configuration variable, so the -append command(s) will override commands from the inserted file if the commands conflict.
-autorescue 0|1
Whether to automatically run the newest rescue DAG for the given DAG file, if one exists (0 = false, 1 = true).
-dorescuefrom number
Forces condor_dagman to run the specified rescue DAG number for the given DAG. A value of 0 is the same as not specifying this option. Specifying a non-existent rescue DAG is a fatal error.
-allowversionmismatch
This optional argument causes condor_dagman to allow a version mismatch between condor_dagman itself and the .condor.sub file produced by condor_submit_dag (or, in other words, between condor_submit_dag and condor_dagman). WARNING! This option should be used only if absolutely necessary. Allowing version mismatches can cause subtle problems when running DAGs. (Note that, starting with version 7.4.0, condor_dagman no longer requires an exact version match between itself and the .condor.sub file. Instead, a "minimum compatible version" is defined, and any .condor.sub file of that version or newer is accepted.)
-no_recurse
This optional argument causes condor_submit_dag to not run itself recursively on nested DAGs (this is now the default; this flag has been kept mainly for backwards compatibility).
-do_recurse
This optional argument causes condor_submit_dag to run itself recursively on nested DAGs (the default is now that it does not run itself recursively; instead the .condor.sub files for nested DAGs are generated "lazily" by condor_dagman itself). (DAG nodes specified with the SUBDAG EXTERNAL keyword or with submit file names ending in .condor.sub are considered nested DAGs.) (See also the DAGMAN_GENERATE_SUBDAG_SUBMITS configuration variable in section 3.3.25 for more information.)
-update_submit
This optional argument causes an existing .condor.sub file to not be treated as an error; rather, the .condor.sub file will be overwritten, but the existing values of -maxjobs, -maxidle, -maxpre, and -maxpost will be preserved.
-import_env
This optional argument causes condor_submit_dag to import the current environment into the environment command of the .condor.sub file it generates.
-DumpRescue
This optional argument tells condor_dagman to immediately dump a rescue DAG and then exit, as opposed to actually running the DAG. This feature is mainly intended for testing. The Rescue DAG file is produced whether or not there are parse errors reading the original DAG input file. The name of the file differs if there was a parse error.
-valgrind
This optional argument causes the submit description file generated for the submission of condor_dagman to be modified. The executable becomes valgrind run on condor_dagman, with a specific set of arguments intended for testing condor_dagman. Note that this argument is intended for testing purposes only. Using the -valgrind option without the necessary valgrind software installed will cause the DAG to fail. If the DAG does run, it will run much more slowly than usual.
-DontAlwaysRunPost
This option causes the submit description file generated for the submission of condor_dagman to be modified. It causes the -DontAlwaysRunPost option to be in the arguments to condor_dagman in the submit description file, which causes condor_dagman to use the return value from a PRE script to determine whether or not a POST script will run. By default, condor_dagman runs the POST script regardless of the return value of the PRE script. Versions of condor_dagman prior to 7.7.2 did not ignore the return value and would not run the POST script if the PRE script failed.
-priority number
Sets the minimum job priority of jobs submitted and running under the condor_dagman job submitted by this condor_submit_dag command.
-dont_use_default_node_log
Tells condor_dagman to use the file specified by the job ClassAd attribute UserLog to monitor job status. If this command line argument is used, then the user log file cannot be defined with a macro. This is necessary if using a condor_dagman version of 7.9.0 or later and submitting to a condor_schedd daemon that is earlier than 7.9.0, including any in the 7.8 series of HTCondor releases.
-schedd-daemon-ad-file FileName
Specifies a full path to a daemon ad file dropped by a condor_schedd. Therefore this allows submission to a specific scheduler if several are available without repeatedly querying the condor_collector. The value for this argument defaults to the configuration attribute SCHEDD_DAEMON_AD_FILE.
-schedd-address-file FileName
Specifies a full path to an address file dropped by a condor_schedd. Therefore this allows submission to a specific scheduler if several are available without repeatedly querying the condor_collector. The value for this argument defaults to the configuration attribute SCHEDD_ADDRESS_FILE.
-suppress_notification
Causes jobs submitted by condor_dagman to not send email notification for events. The same effect can be achieved by setting configuration variable DAGMAN_SUPPRESS_NOTIFICATION to True. This command line option is independent of the -notification command line option, which controls notification for the condor_dagman job itself.
-dont_suppress_notification
Causes jobs submitted by condor_dagman to defer to content within the submit description file when deciding to send email notification for events. The same effect can be achieved by setting configuration variable DAGMAN_SUPPRESS_NOTIFICATION to False. This command line flag is independent of the -notification command line option, which controls notification for the condor_dagman job itself. If both -dont_suppress_notification and -suppress_notification are specified with the same command line, the last argument is used.

Exit Status

condor_submit_dag will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.

Examples

To run a single DAG:

% condor_submit_dag diamond.dag

To run a DAG when it has already been run and the output files exist:

% condor_submit_dag -force diamond.dag

To run a DAG, limiting the number of idle node jobs in the DAG to a maximum of five:

% condor_submit_dag -maxidle 5 diamond.dag

To run a DAG, limiting the number of concurrent PRE scripts to 10 and the number of concurrent POST scripts to five:

% condor_submit_dag -maxpre 10 -maxpost 5 diamond.dag

To run two DAGs, each of which is set up to run in its own directory:

% condor_submit_dag -usedagdir dag1/diamond1.dag dag2/diamond2.dag
