Name

       condor_vacate Vacate - jobs that are running on the specified hosts

Synopsis

       condor_vacate [-help -version]

       condor_vacate[-graceful -fast] [-debug] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]] [-name
       hostnamehostname-addr "<a.b.c.d:port>""<a.b.c.d:port>"-constraint expression-all]

Description

       condor_vacate causes HTCondor to checkpoint any running jobs on  a  set  of  machines  and
       force  the  jobs to vacate the machine. The job(s) remains in the submitting machine's job
       queue.

       Given the (default) -gracefuloption, a job running under the standard universe will  first
       produce  a  checkpoint and then the job will be killed. HTCondor will then restart the job
       somewhere else, using the checkpoint to continue from where it left  off.  A  job  running
       under  the  vanilla  universe  is killed, and HTCondor restarts the job from the beginning
       somewhere else. condor_vacatehas no effect on a machine with  no  HTCondor  job  currently
       running.

       There  is generally no need for the user or administrator to explicitly run condor_vacate.
       HTCondor takes care of jobs in this way automatically  following  the  policies  given  in
       configuration files.

Options

       -help

          Display usage information

       -version

          Display version information

       -graceful

          Inform the job to checkpoint, then soft-kill it.

       -fast

          Hard-kill jobs instead of checkpointing them

       -debug

          Causes  debugging  information  to  be  sent  to  stderr,  based  on  the  value of the
          configuration variable TOOL_DEBUG.

       -pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]

          Specify a pool by giving the central manager's host name and an optional port number

       -name hostname

          Send the command to a machine identified by hostname

       hostname

          Send the command to a machine identified by hostname

       -addr <a.b.c.d:port>

          Send the command to a machine's master located at "<a.b.c.d:port>"

       <a.b.c.d:port>

          Send the command to a machine located at "<a.b.c.d:port>"

       -constraint expression

          Apply this command only to machines matching the given ClassAd expression

       -all

          Send the command to all machines in the pool

Exit Status

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

Examples

       To send a condor_vacate command to two named machines:

       % condor_vacate   robin cardinal

       To  send  the  condor_vacatecommand  to a machine within a pool of machines other than the
       local pool, use the -pooloption. The argument is the name of the central manager  for  the
       pool.  Note that one or more machines within the pool must be specified as the targets for
       the command. This command sends the command to a the single machine named cae17within  the
       pool of machines that has condor.cae.wisc.eduas its central manager:

       % condor_vacate  -pool condor.cae.wisc.edu -name cae17
