condor_dagman is a meta scheduler for the HTCondor jobs within a DAG (directed acyclic graph) (or multiple DAGs). In typical usage, a submitter of jobs that are organized into a DAG submits the DAG using condor_submit_dag. condor_submit_dagdoes error checking on aspects of the DAG and then submits condor_dagman as an HTCondor job. condor_dagman uses log files to coordinate the further submission of the jobs within the DAG. All command line arguments to the DaemonCorelibrary functions work for condor_dagman. When invoked from the command line, condor_dagmanrequires the arguments -f -l .to appear first on the command line, to be processed by DaemonCore. The csdversionmust also be specified; at start up, condor_dagmanchecks for a version mismatch with the condor_submit_dagversion in this argument. The -targument must also be present for the -helpoption, such that output is sent to the terminal. Arguments to condor_dagmanare either automatically set by condor_submit_dagor they are specified as command-line arguments to condor_submit_dagand passed on to condor_dagman. The method by which the arguments are set is given in their description below. condor_dagmancan run multiple, independent DAGs. This is done by specifying multiple -dag arguments. Pass multiple DAG input files as command-line arguments to condor_submit_dag. Debugging output may be obtained by using the -debug leveloption. Level values and what they produce is described as * level = 0; never produce output, except for usage info * level = 1; very quiet, output severe errors * level = 2; normal output, errors and warnings * level = 3; output errors, as well as all warnings * level = 4; internal debugging output * level = 5; internal debugging output; outer loop debugging * level = 6; internal debugging output; inner loop debugging; output DAG input file lines as they are parsed * level = 7; internal debugging output; rarely used; output DAG input file lines as they are parsed
-help Display usage information and exit. -version Display version information and exit. -debug level An integer level of debugging output. levelis an integer, with values of 0-7 inclusive, where 7 is the most verbose output. This command-line option to condor_submit_dagis passed to condor_dagman or defaults to the value 3. -maxidle NumberOfProcs Sets the maximum number of idle procs allowed before condor_dagman stops submitting more node jobs. Note that for this argument, each individual proc within a cluster counts as a towards the limit, which is inconsistent with -maxjobs.Once idle procs start to run, condor_dagman will resume submitting jobs once the number of idle procs falls below the specified limit. NumberOfProcsis a non-negative integer. If this option is omitted, the number of idle procs is limited by the configuration variable DAGMAN_MAX_JOBS_IDLE(see 3.5.23), which defaults to 1000. To disable this limit, set NumberOfProcsto 0. Note that submit description files that queue multiple procs can cause the NumberOfProcslimit to be exceeded. Setting queue 5000in the submit description file, where -maxidleis set to 250 will result in a cluster of 5000 new procs being submitted to the condor_schedd, not 250. In this case, condor_dagman will resume submitting jobs when the number of idle procs falls below 250. -maxjobs NumberOfClusters Sets the maximum number of clusters within the DAG that will be submitted to HTCondor at one time. Note that for this argument, each cluster counts as one job, no matter how many individual procs are in the cluster. NumberOfClustersis a non-negative integer. If this option is omitted, the number of clusters is limited by the configuration variable DAGMAN_MAX_JOBS_SUBMITTED(see 3.5.23), which defaults to 0 (unlimited). -maxpre NumberOfPreScripts Sets the maximum number of PRE scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPreScriptsis a non-negative integer. If this option is omitted, the number of PRE scripts is limited by the configuration variable DAGMAN_MAX_PRE_SCRIPTS(see 3.5.23), which defaults to 20. -maxpost NumberOfPostScripts Sets the maximum number of POST scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPostScriptsis a non-negative integer. If this option is omitted, the number of POST scripts is limited by the configuration variable DAGMAN_MAX_POST_SCRIPTS(see 3.5.23), which defaults to 20. -noeventchecks This argument is no longer used; it is now ignored. Its functionality is now implemented by the DAGMAN_ALLOW_EVENTSconfiguration variable. -allowlogerror As of verson 8.5.5 this argument is no longer supported, and setting it will generate a warning. -usedagdir This optional argument causes condor_dagman to run each specified DAG as if the directory containing that DAG file was the current working directory. This option is most useful when running multiple DAGs in a single condor_dagman . -lockfile filename Names the file created and used as a lock file. The lock file prevents execution of two of the same DAG, as defined by a DAG input file. A default lock file ending with the suffix .dag.lockis passed to condor_dagman by condor_submit_dag. -waitfordebug This optional argument causes condor_dagman to wait at startup until someone attaches to the process with a debugger and sets the wait_for_debug variable in main_init() to false. -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 nonexistent 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.subfile produced by condor_submit_dag(or, in other words, between condor_submit_dagand 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.subfile. Instead, a "minimum compatible version" is defined, and any .condor.subfile of that version or newer is accepted.) -DumpRescue This optional argument causes 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. -verbose (This argument is included only to be passed to condor_submit_dagif lazy submit file generation is used for nested DAGs.) Cause condor_submit_dagto give verbose error messages. -force (This argument is included only to be passed to condor_submit_dagif lazy submit file generation is used for nested DAGs.) Require condor_submit_dagto overwrite the files that it produces, if the files already exist. Note that dagman.outwill be appended to, not overwritten. If new-style rescue DAG mode is in effect, and any new-style rescue DAGs exist, the -forceflag 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. See the HTCondor manual section on Rescue DAGs for more information. -notification value This argument is only included to be passed to condor_submit_dagif lazy submit file generation is used for nested DAGs. 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. The notificationoption is described in the condor_submitmanual page. -suppress_notification Causes jobs submitted by condor_dagman to not send email notification for events. The same effect can be achieved by setting the configuration variable DAGMAN_SUPPRESS_NOTIFICATIONto True. This command line option is independent of the -notificationcommand line option, which controls notification for the condor_dagman job itself. This flag is generally superfluous, as DAGMAN_SUPPRESS_NOTIFICATIONdefaults to True. -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 the configuration variable DAGMAN_SUPPRESS_NOTIFICATIONto False. This command line flag is independent of the -notificationcommand line option, which controls notification for the condor_dagman job itself. If both -dont_suppress_notificationand -suppress_notificationare specified within the same command line, the last argument is used. -dagman DagmanExecutable (This argument is included only to be passed to condor_submit_dagif lazy submit file generation is used for nested DAGs.) 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. -outfile_dir directory (This argument is included only to be passed to condor_submit_dagif lazy submit file generation is used for nested DAGs.) Specifies the directory in which the .dagman.outfile will be written. The directorymay be specified relative to the current working directory as condor_submit_dagis executed, or specified with an absolute path. Without this option, the .dagman.outfile is placed in the same directory as the first DAG input file listed on the command line. -update_submit (This argument is included only to be passed to condor_submit_dagif lazy submit file generation is used for nested DAGs.) This optional argument causes an existing .condor.subfile to not be treated as an error; rather, the .condor.subfile will be overwritten, but the existing values of -maxjobs, -maxidle, -maxpre, and -maxpostwill be preserved. -import_env (This argument is included only to be passed to condor_submit_dagif lazy submit file generation is used for nested DAGs.) This optional argument causes condor_submit_dagto import the current environment into the environmentcommand of the .condor.subfile it generates. -priority number Sets the minimum job priority of node jobs submitted and running under this condor_dagman job. -dont_use_default_node_log This option is disabled as of HTCondor version 8.3.1.Tells condor_dagman to use the file specified by the job ClassAd attribute UserLogto monitor job status. If this command line argument is used, then the job event log file cannot be defined with a macro. -DontAlwaysRunPost This option causes condor_dagman to not run the POST script of a node if the PRE script fails. (This was the default behavior prior to HTCondor version 7.7.2, and is again the default behavior from version 8.5.4 onwards.) -AlwaysRunPost This option causes condor_dagman to always run the POST script of a node, even if the PRE script fails. (This was the default behavior for HTCondor version 7.7.2 through version 8.5.3.) -DoRecovery Causes condor_dagman to start in recovery mode. This means that it reads the relevant job user log(s) and catches up to the given DAG's previous state before submitting any new jobs. -dag filename filenameis the name of the DAG input file that is set as an argument to condor_submit_dag, and passed to condor_dagman .
condor_dagmanwill exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
condor_dagmanis normally not run directly, but submitted as an HTCondor job by running condor_submit_dag. See the condor_submit_dag manual page for examples.
