Gather information about an HTCondor installation and a queued job


condor_gather_info [--jobid ClusterId.ProcId] [--scratch /path/to/directory]


condor_gather_info is a Linux-only tool that 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.

Without the --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.

With the --jobid option, 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

All 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:

  1. Identity
  2. Job Information


--jobid $<$ClusterId.ProcId$>$
Data mine information about this HTCondor job from the local HTCondor installation and condor_schedd.
--scratch /path/to/directory
A path to temporary space needed when building the output tar file. Defaults to /tmp/cgi-<PID>, where <PID> is replaced by the process ID of condor_gather_info.


Exit Status

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.
