       condor_status Display - status of the HTCondor pool


       condor_status  [-debug]  [help options] [query options] [display options] [custom options]
       [name ... ]


       condor_status is a versatile tool that may be used to monitor and query the HTCondor pool.
       The  condor_status  tool can be used to query resource information, submitter information,
       checkpoint server information, and daemon master information. The specific query sent  and
       the resulting information display is controlled by the query options supplied. Queries and
       display formats can also be customized.

       The options that may be supplied to condor_statusbelong to five groups:

          * Help optionsprovide information about the condor_status tool.

          * Query optionscontrol the content and presentation of status information.

          * Display optionscontrol the display of the queried information.

          * Custom optionsallow the user to customize query and display information.

          * Host optionsspecify specific machines to be queried

       At any time, only one help option, one query optionand one display optionmay be specified.
       Any number of custom optionsand host optionsmay be specified.

       -direct hostname

          (Query option) Go directly to the given host name to get the ClassAds  to  display.  By
          default,  returns  the  condor_startdClassAd.  If  -scheddis  also  given,  return  the
          condor_scheddClassAd on that host.


          (Query option) Display only Java-capable resources.

       -statistics WhichStatistics

          (Query option) Can only be used if the -directoption  has  been  specified.  Identifies
          which  Statistics  attributes  to  include  in the ClassAd. WhichStatisticsis specified
          using the same syntax as defined for  STATISTICS_TO_PUBLISH . A definition  is  in  the
          HTCondor Administrator's manual section on configuration.


          (Query option) Display attributes of machines with network storage resources.


          (Query  option)  Query  ClassAds  sent  by  submitters  and display important submitter

       -subsystem type

          (Query option) If typeis one of  collector,  negotiator,  master,  schedd,  startd,  or
          quill,  then behavior is the same as the query option without the -subsystemoption. For
          example, -subsystem collectoris the same as -collector. A value of  typeof  CkptServer,
          Machine, DaemonMaster, or Schedulertargets that type of ClassAd.


          (Query  option)  Query  condor_startdClassAds,  and  display  only VM-enabled machines.
          Information displayed includes the the  machine  name,  the  virtual  machine  software
          version, the state of machine, the virtual machine memory, and the type of networking.

       -attributes Attr1[,Attr2 ... ]

          (Display  option) Explicitly list the attributes in a comma separated list which should
          be displayed when using the -xmlor -longoptions.  Limiting  the  number  of  attributes
          increases the efficiency of the query.


          (Display option) Display shortened error messages


          (Display option) Display entire ClassAds (same as -verbose)

       -sort expr

          (Display  option)  Change  the  display  order  to  be  based on ascending values of an
          evaluated expression given by expr. Evaluated expressions of a string  type  are  in  a
          case  insensitive  alphabetical order. If multiple -sortarguments appear on the command
          line, the primary sort will be on the leftmost one within the command line, and  it  is
          numbered 0. A secondary sort will be based on the second expression, and it is numbered
          1. For informational or debugging purposes, the ClassAd output  to  be  displayed  will
          appear  as if the ClassAd had two additional attributes.  CondorStatusSortKeyExpr<N> is
          the   expression,   where    <N>   is   replaced   by   the   number   of   the   sort.
          CondorStatusSortKey<N>  gives  the  result  of  evaluating  the sort expression that is
          numbered  <N> .


          (Display option) Display totals only


          (Display option) Display entire ClassAds. Implies that totals will not be displayed.


          (Display option) Display entire ClassAds, in  XML  format.  The  XML  format  is  fully
          defined  in  the  reference manual, obtained from the ClassAds web page, with a link at

       -constraint const

          (Custom option) Add constraint expression.

       -format fmt attr

          (Custom option) Display attribute or expression  attrin  format  fmt.  To  display  the
          attribute  or  expression the format must contain a single  printf(3) -style conversion
          specifier. Attributes must be  from  the  resource  ClassAd.  Expressions  are  ClassAd
          expressions  and  may  refer to attributes in the resource ClassAd. If the attribute is
          not present in a given ClassAd and cannot be parsed as an expression, then  the  format
          option  will  be  silently skipped. The conversion specifier must match the type of the
          attribute or expression. %s is suitable for strings such as  Name  ,  %d  for  integers
          such  as   LastHeardFrom  ,  and  %f  for  floating point numbers such as  LoadAvg . %v
          identifies the type of the attribute, and then  prints  the  value  in  an  appropriate
          format.  %V  identifies  the  type  of  the  attribute, and then prints the value in an
          appropriate format as it would appear in the -longformat. As an example,  strings  used
          with  %V  will have quote marks. An incorrect format will result in undefined behavior.
          Do not use more than one  conversion  specifier  in  a  given  format.  More  than  one
          conversion  specifier  will result in undefined behavior. To output multiple attributes
          repeat the -formatoption once  for  each  desired  attribute.  Like   printf(3)  -style
          formats,  one may include other text that will be reproduced directly. A format without
          any conversion specifiers may be specified, but an attribute is still required. Include
          n to specify a line break.

       -autoformat[:tn,lVh] attr1 [attr2 ...]

          (Custom  option)  Display  machine  ClassAd attribute values formatted in a default way
          according to their attribute types. This option takes an arbitrary number of  attribute
          names  as  arguments, and prints out their values. It is like the -formatoption, but no
          format strings are required. It is assumed that no attribute names begin  with  a  dash
          character, so that the next word that begins with dash is the start of the next option.
          The autoformatoption may be followed by a colon character and formatting qualifiers:

          tadd a tab character before each field instead of the default space character,

          nadd a newline character after each field,

          ,add a comma character after each field,

          llabel each field,

          Vuse %V rather than %v for formatting,

          hprint headings before the first line of output.

          The newline and comma characters may notbe used together.

       -target filename

          (Custom option) Where evaluation requires a target ClassAd to  evaluate  against,  file
          filenamecontains the target ClassAd.

General Remarks

          *  The  default output from condor_status is formatted to be human readable, not script
          readable. In an effort to make the output fit within  80  characters,  values  in  some
          fields  might be truncated. Furthermore, the HTCondor Project can (and does) change the
          formatting of this default output  as  we  see  fit.  Therefore,  any  script  that  is
          attempting  to  parse  data  from  condor_status  is  strongly  encouraged  to  use the
          -formatoption (described above).

          * The information obtained from  condor_startdand  condor_schedddaemons  may  sometimes
          appear  to  be inconsistent. This is normal since condor_startdand condor_schedddaemons
          update the HTCondor manager  at  different  rates,  and  since  there  is  a  delay  as
          information propagates through the network and the system.

          *  Note  that  the   ActivityTime  in the  Idle state is notthe amount of time that the
          machine has been idle. See the section on condor_startdstates  in  the  Administrator's
          Manualfor more information.

          * When using condor_status on a pool with SMP machines, you can either provide the host
          name, in which case you will get back information about all slots that are  represented
          on  that  host,  or  you  can  list  specific slots by name. See the examples below for

          * If you specify host names,  without  domains,  HTCondor  will  automatically  try  to
          resolve  those host names into fully qualified host names for you. This also works when
          specifying specific nodes of an SMP machine. In this case, everything after  the  ``@''
          sign is treated as a host name and that is what is resolved.

          *  You  can  use the -directoption in conjunction with almost any other set of options.
          However, at this time, the only daemon that will allow direct queries for its ad(s)  is
          the  condor_startd.  So,  the  only  options  currently  not  supported with -directare
          -scheddand -master. Most other options use startd ads for their  information,  so  they
          work seamlessly with -direct. The only other restriction on -directis that you may only
          use 1 -directoption at a time. If you want to query information directly from  multiple
          hosts, you must run condor_status multiple times.

          *  Unless  you  use  the local host name with -direct, condor_status will still have to
          contact a collector to find the address where the specified daemon  is  listening.  So,
          using a -pooloption in conjunction with -directjust tells condor_status which collector
          to query to find the address of the daemon you want. The information actually displayed
          will  still  be  retrieved  directly  from  the daemon you specified as the argument to


       Example 1To view information from all nodes of an SMP machine, use only the host name. For
       example, if you had a 4-CPU machine, named , you might see

       % condor_status  vulture

       Name               OpSys      Arch   State     Activity LoadAv Mem   ActvtyTime

       slot4@vulture.cs.w LINUX      INTEL  Unclaimed Idle     0.000   512  1+11:05:34

       Example  2To  view  information  from a specific nodes of an SMP machine, specify the node
       directly. You do this by providing the name of the slot. This has the form  slot#@hostname
       . For example:

       % condor_status  slot3@vulture

       Name               OpSys      Arch   State     Activity LoadAv Mem   ActvtyTime

       slot3@vulture.cs.w LINUX      INTEL  Unclaimed Idle     0.070   512  1+11:10:32

       Constraint option examples

       The  Unix  command  to  use  the  constraint option to see all machines with the  OpSys of
       "LINUX" :

       % condor_status  -constraint OpSys==\"LINUX\"

       Note that quotation marks must be escaped with the backslash characters for most shells.

       The Windows command to do the same thing:

       >condor_status  -constraint " OpSys==""LINUX"" "

       Note that quotation marks are used to delimit the single argument which is the expression,
       and  the  quotation  marks  that identify the string must be escaped by using a set of two
       double quote marks without any intervening spaces.

       To see all machines that are currently in the Idle state, the Unix command is

       % condor_status  -constraint State==\"Idle\"

       To see all machines that are bench marked to have a MIPS rating of more than 750, the Unix
       command is

       % condor_status  -constraint 'Mips>750'

       -cod option example

       The -codoption displays the status of COD claims within a given HTCondor pool.

       Name        ID   ClaimState TimeInState RemoteUser JobId Keyword
       astro.cs.wi COD1 Idle        0+00:00:04 wright

       chopin.cs.w COD2 Suspended   0+00:10:21 wright     4.0   fractgen

                     Total  Idle  Running  Suspended  Vacating  Killing
       INTEL/LINUX       3     1        1          1         0        0
             Total       3     1        1          1         0        0

       -format  option  exampleTo display the name and memory attributes of each job ClassAd in a
       format that is easily parsable by other tools:

       % condor_status  -format "%s " Name -format "%d\n" Memory

       To do the same with the autoformatoption, run

       % condor_status  -autoformat Name Memory

Exit Status

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