       condor_qsub Queue - jobs that use PBS/SGE-style submission


       condor_qsub [ -- version]

       condor_qsub[Specific  options]  [Directory options] [Environmental options] [File options]
       [Notification  options]  [Resource  options]   [Status   options]   [Submission   options]


       condor_qsubsubmits  an HTCondor job. This job is specified in a PBS/Torque style or an SGE
       style. condor_qsubpermits the submission of dependent jobs without the need to specify the
       full dependency graph at submission time. Doing things this way is neither as efficient as
       HTCondor's DAGMan, nor as functional  as  SGE's  qsubor  qalter.  condor_qsubserves  as  a
       minimal  translator  to  be  able to use software originally written to interact with PBS,
       Torque, and SGE in an HTCondor pool.

       condor_qsubattempts to behave like qsub.  Less  than  half  of  the  qsubfunctionality  is
       implemented.  Option descriptions describe the differences between the behavior of qsuband
       condor_qsub. qsuboptions not listed here are not supported. Some concepts present  in  PBS
       and SGE do not apply to HTCondor, and so these options are not implemented.

       For a full listing of qsuboptions, please see







       condor_qsubaccepts  either  command  line  options  or  the single file, commandfile, that
       contains all of the commands.

       condor_qsubdoes the opposite of job submission within  the  griduniverse  batchgrid  type,
       which  takes HTCondor jobs submitted with HTCondor syntax and submits them to PBS, SGE, or


       -a date_time

          (Submission option) Specify a deferred execution date and time. The  PBS/Torque  syntax
          of  date_timeis  a  string  in the form [[[[CC]YY]MM]DD]hhmm[.SS]. The portions of this
          string which are optional are CC, YY, MM, DD, and SS. For SGE, MMand DDare notoptional.
          For PBS, MMand DDare optional. condor_qsub follows the PBS style.

       -A account_string

          (Status  option) Uses group accounting where the string account_stringis the accounting
          group associated with this job. Unlike SGE, there is no default group of "sge".

       -b y|n

          (Submission option) Using the SGE definition  of  its  -boption,  a  value  of  ycauses
          condor_qsub to notparse the file for additional condor_qsub commands. The default value
          is n. If the command line argument -f filenameis also specified, it negates a value  of

       -c checkpoint_option

          (Submission option) For standard universe jobs only, controls the how HTCondor produces
          checkpoints. checkpoint_optionsmay be one of

          n or N

             Do not produce checkpoints.

          s or S

             Do not produce periodic checkpoints. A job will only produce a checkpoint  when  the
             job is evicted.

             More options may be implemented in the future.


          (Specific   option)   Directs  HTCondor  to  notremove  temporary  files  generated  by
          condor_qsub , such as HTCondor submit files and sentinel jobs.  These  temporary  files
          may be important for debugging.


          (Directory  option) Specifies the initial directory in which the job will run to be the
          current  directory  from  which  the  job  was  submitted.  This   sets   initialdirfor

       -d pathor -wd path

          (Directory  option)  Specifies  the  initial  directory in which the job will run to be
          path. This sets initialdirfor condor_submit.

       -e filename

          (File option)  Specifies  the  condor_submitcommand  error,  the  file  where  stderris
          written. If not specified, set to the default name of <commandfile>.e<ClusterId>, where
          <commandfile>is  the  condor_qsub  argument,  and  <ClusterId>is  the   job   attribute
          ClusterIdassigned for the job.

       &mdash;f qsub_file

          (Specific    option)    Parse    qsub_fileto    search    for    and   set   additional
          condor_submitcommands.  Within  the  file,  commands  will  appear  as   #PBSor   #SGE.
          condor_qsub will parse the batch file listed as qsub_file.


          (Status option) Placed submitted job directly into the hold state.


          (Specific option) Print usage information and exit.

       -hold_jid <jid>

          (Status  option)  Submits  a  job  in  the hold state. This job is released only when a
          previously submitted job, identified by its cluster ID as  <jid>,  exits  successfully.
          Successful  completion is defined as not exiting with exit code 100. In implementation,
          there are three jobs that define this SGE feature. The  first  job  is  the  previously
          submitted  job. The second job is the newly submitted one that is waiting for the first
          to finish successfully. The third job is what SGE  calls  a  sentineljob;  this  is  an
          HTCondor  local  universe  job  that watches the history for the first job's exit code.
          This third job will exit once  it  has  seen  the  exit  code  and,  for  a  successful
          termination  of the first job, run condor_releaseon the second job. If the first job is
          an array job, the second job will only be released after all  individual  jobs  of  the
          first job have completed.

       -i [hostname:]filename

          (File  option)  Specifies  the  condor_submitcommand input, the file from which stdinis

       -j characters

          (File option) Acceptable characters for this option are e, o, and n. The only  sequence
          that  is  relevant is eo; it specifies that both standard output and standard error are
          to be sent to the same file. The file will be the one specified  by  the  -ooption,  if
          both  the -oand -eoptions exist. The file will be the one specified by the -eoption, if
          only the -eoption is provided. If neither the -onor the  -eoptions  are  provided,  the
          file will be the default used for the -ooption.

       -l resource_spec

          (Resource option) Specifies requirements for the job, such as the amount of RAM and the
          number of CPUs. Only PBS-style resource requests are supported. resource_specis a comma
          separated  list  of  key/value  pairs.  Each  pair  is of the form resource_name=value.
          resource_nameand valuemay be

          resource_namevalueDescriptionarchstringSets Archmachine attribute.  Enclose  in  double
          quotes.filesizeDisk  space  requested.hoststringHost  machine  on  which  the  job must

          OpSysmachine attribute. Enclose in double quotes.procsintegerNumber of CPUs requested.A
          size  value  is an integer specified in bytes, following the PBS/Torque default. Append
          Kb, Mb, Gb, or Tbto specify the value in powers of two quantities greater than bytes.

       -m a|e|n

          (Notification option) Identify when HTCondor sends notification e-mail. If a,  send  e-
          mail  when the job terminates abnormally. If e, send e-mail when the job terminates. If
          n, never send e-mail.

       -M e-mail_address

          (Notification option) Sets the destination address for HTCondor e-mail.

       -o filename

          (File option) Specifies  the  condor_submitcommand  output,  the  file  where  stdoutis
          written. If not specified, set to the default name of <commandfile>.o<ClusterId>, where
          <commandfile>is  the  condor_qsub  argument,  and  <ClusterId>is  the   job   attribute
          ClusterIdassigned for the job.

       -p integer

          (Status  option) Sets the prioritysubmit command for the job, with 0 being the default.
          Jobs with higher numerical priority will run before jobs with lower numerical priority.


          (Specific option) Send to stdoutthe contents of the HTCondor  submit  description  file
          that condor_qsub generates.

       -r y|n

          (Status  option)  The  default  value  of  yimplements  the  default HTCondor policy of
          assuming that jobs that do not complete are placed back in the queue to be  run  again.
          When  n,  job  submission  is  restricted  to  only  running the job if the job ClassAd
          attribute NumJobStartsis currently 0. This  identifies  the  job  as  not  re-runnable,
          limiting it to start once.

       -S shell

          (Submission  option)  Specifies  the  path  and  executable name of a shell. Alters the
          HTCondor submit description file produced, such that the executable becomes  a  wrapper
          script.  Within the submit description file will be executable = <shell>and arguments =

       -t start [-stop:step]

          (Submission option) Queues a set of nearly identical  jobs.  The  SGE-style  syntax  is
          supported.  start,  stop,  and  stepare all integers. startis the starting index of the
          jobs, stopis the ending index (inclusive) of the jobs, and stepis the step size through
          the  indices.  Note  that  using more than one processor or node in a job will not work
          with this option.


          (Specific option) With the intention of testing a potential job submission, parse files
          and  commands  to generate error output. Produces, but then removes the HTCondor submit
          description file. Never submits the job, even if no errors are encountered.

       -v variable list

          (Environmental option) Used to set the submit command environmentfor the job.  variable
          listis  as  that  defined  for  the  submit  command.  Note  that  the syntax needed is
          specialized to deal with quote marks and white space characters.


          (Environmental option) Sets getenv = Truein the submit description file.

       -W attr_name=attr_value[,attr_name=attr_value...]

          (File option) PBS/Torque supports a number of  attributes.  However,  condor_qsub  only
          supports  the  names  stageinand  stageoutfor  attr_name.  The  format of attr_valuefor
          stageinand  stageoutis  local_file@hostname:remote_file[,...]and   we   strip   it   to
          remote_file[,...]. HTCondor's file transfer mechanism is then used if needed.


          (Specific  option) Print version information for the condor_qsub program and exit. Note
          that condor_qsub has its own version numbers which are separate from those of HTCondor.

Exit Status

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