condor_submit_dagis the program for submitting a DAG (directed acyclic graph) of jobs for execution under HTCondor. The program enforces the job dependencies defined in one or more DAGInputFiles. Each DAGInputFilecontains commands to direct the submission of jobs implied by the nodes of a DAG to HTCondor. Extensive documentation is in the HTCondor User Manual section on DAGMan.
-help Display usage information. -version Display version information. -no_submit Produce the HTCondor submit description file for DAGMan, but do not submit DAGMan as an HTCondor job. -verbose Cause condor_submit_dag to give verbose error messages. -force Require condor_submit_dag to overwrite the files that it produces, if the files already exist. Note that dagman.out will 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. -maxidle NumberOfJobs Sets the maximum number of idle jobs allowed before condor_dagmanstops submitting more jobs. Once idle jobs start to run, condor_dagmanwill resume submitting jobs. NumberOfJobsis a positive integer. If the option is omitted, the number of idle jobs is unlimited. Note that for this argument, each individual process within a cluster counts as a job, which is inconsistent with -maxjobs.Nothing special is done to the submit description file. Setting queue 5000 in the submit description file, where -maxidleis set to 250 will result in a cluster of 5000 new jobs being submitted to the condor_schedd. In this case, condor_dagmanwill resume submitting jobs when the number of idle jobs falls below 250. -maxjobs NumberOfJobs Sets the maximum number of jobs within the DAG that will be submitted to HTCondor at one time. NumberOfJobsis a positive integer. If the option is omitted, the default number of jobs is unlimited. Note that for this argument, each cluster counts as one job, no matter how many individual processes are in the cluster. -dagman DagmanExecutable Allows the specification of an alternate condor_dagmanexecutable to be used instead of the one found in the user's path. This must be a fully qualified path. -maxpre NumberOfPREscripts Sets the maximum number of PRE scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPREScriptsis a positive integer. If this option is omitted, the default number of PRE scripts is unlimited. -maxpost NumberOfPOSTscripts Sets the maximum number of POST scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPOSTScriptsis a positive integer. If this option is omitted, the default number of POST scripts is unlimited. -notification value 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 . See the description of notificationwithin condor_submitmanual page for a specification of value. -noeventchecks This argument is no longer used; it is now ignored. Its functionality is now implemented by the DAGMAN_ALLOW_EVENTS configuration variable. -allowlogerror This optional argument has condor_dagmantry to run the specified DAG, even in the case of detected errors in the job event log specification. As of version 7.3.2, this argument has an effect only on DAGs containing Stork job nodes. -r schedd_name Submit condor_dagmanto a remote machine, specifically the condor_schedddaemon on that machine. The condor_dagmanjob will not run on the local condor_schedd(the submit machine), but on the specified one. This is implemented using the -remoteoption to condor_submit. Note that this option does not currently specify input files for condor_dagman, nor the individual nodes to be taken along! It is assumed that any necessary files will be present on the remote computer, possibly via a shared file system between the local computer and the remote computer. It is also necessary that the user has appropriate permissions to submit a job to the remote machine; the permissions are the same as those required to use condor_submit's -remoteoption. If other options are desired, including transfer of other input files, consider using the -no_submitoption, modifying the resulting submit file for specific needs, and then using condor_submiton that. -debug level Passes the the levelof debugging output desired to condor_dagman. levelis an integer, with values of 0-7 inclusive, where 7 is the most verbose output. See the condor_dagmanmanual page for detailed descriptions of these values. If not specified, no -debug value is passed to condor_dagman. -usedagdir This optional argument causes condor_dagmanto run each specified DAG as if condor_submit_dag had been run in the directory containing that DAG file. This option is most useful when running multiple DAGs in a single condor_dagman. Note that the -usedagdirflag must not be used when running an old-style Rescue DAG. -outfile_dir directory Specifies the directory in which the .dagman.out file will be written. The directorymay be specified relative to the current working directory as condor_submit_dag is executed, or specified with an absolute path. Without this option, the .dagman.out file is placed in the same directory as the first DAG input file listed on the command line. -config ConfigFileName Specifies a configuration file to be used for this DAGMan run. Note that the options specified in the configuration file apply to all DAGs if multiple DAGs are specified. Further note that it is a fatal error if the configuration file specified by this option conflicts with a configuration file specified in any of the DAG files, if they specify one. -insert_sub_file FileName Specifies a file to insert into the .condor.sub file created by condor_submit_dag . The specified file must contain only legal submit file commands. Only one file can be inserted. (If both the DAGMAN_INSERT_SUB_FILE configuration variable and -insert_sub_fileare specified, -insert_sub_fileoverrides DAGMAN_INSERT_SUB_FILE.) The specified file is inserted into the .condor.sub file before the Queue command and before any commands specified with the -appendoption. -append Command Specifies a command to append to the .condor.sub file created by condor_submit_dag . The specified command is appended to the .condor.sub file immediately before the Queue command. Multiple commands are specified by using the -appendoption multiple times. Each new command is given in a separate -appendoption. Commands with spaces in them must be enclosed in double quotes. Commands specified with the -appendoption are appended to the .condor.sub file aftercommands inserted from a file specified by the -insert_sub_fileoption or the DAGMAN_INSERT_SUB_FILE configuration variable, so the -appendcommand(s) will override commands from the inserted file if the commands conflict. -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_dagmanto run the specified rescue DAG number for the given DAG. A value of 0 is the same as not specifying this option. Specifying a non-existent rescue DAG is a fatal error. -allowversionmismatch This optional argument causes condor_dagmanto allow a version mismatch between condor_dagmanitself and the .condor.sub file produced by condor_submit_dag (or, in other words, between condor_submit_dag and 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_dagmanno longer requires an exact version match between itself and the .condor.sub file. Instead, a "minimum compatible version" is defined, and any .condor.sub file of that version or newer is accepted.) -no_recurse This optional argument causes condor_submit_dag to notrun itself recursively on nested DAGs (this is now the default; this flag has been kept mainly for backwards compatibility). -do_recurse This optional argument causes condor_submit_dag to run itself recursively on nested DAGs. The default is now that it does notrun itself recursively; instead the .condor.sub files for nested DAGs are generated "lazily" by condor_dagmanitself. DAG nodes specified with the SUBDAG EXTERNALkeyword or with submit file names ending in .condor.sub are considered nested DAGs. The DAGMAN_GENERATE_SUBDAG_SUBMITS configuration variable may be relevant. -update_submit This optional argument causes an existing .condor.sub file to not be treated as an error; rather, the .condor.sub file will be overwritten, but the existing values of -maxjobs, -maxidle, -maxpre, and -maxpostwill be preserved. -import_env This optional argument causes condor_submit_dag to import the current environment into the environmentcommand of the .condor.sub file it generates. -DumpRescue This optional argument tells condor_dagmanto 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. -valgrind This optional argument causes the submit description file generated for the submission of condor_dagmanto be modified. The executable becomes valgrindrun on condor_dagman, with a specific set of arguments intended for testing condor_dagman. Note that this argument is intended for testing purposes only. Using the -valgrindoption without the necessary valgrindsoftware installed will cause the DAG to fail. If the DAG does run, it will run much more slowly than usual. -DontAlwaysRunPost This option causes the submit description file generated for the submission of condor_dagmanto be modified. It causes the -DontAlwaysRunPostoption to be in the arguments to condor_dagmanin the submit description file, which causes condor_dagmanto use the return value from a PRE script to determine whether or not a POST script will run. By default, condor_dagmanruns the POST script regardless of the return value of the PRE script. Versions of condor_dagmanprior to 7.7.2 did not ignore the return value and would not run the POST script if the PRE script failed. -priority number Sets the minimum job priority of jobs submitted and running under the condor_dagmanjob submitted by this condor_submit_dag command. -dont_use_default_node_log Tells condor_dagmanto use the file specified by the job ClassAd attribute UserLog to monitor job status. If this command line argument is used, then the job event log file cannot be defined with a macro. This is necessary if using a condor_dagmanversion of 7.9.0 or later and submitting to a condor_schedddaemon that is earlier than 7.9.0, including any in the 7.8 series of HTCondor releases. -schedd-daemon-ad-file FileName Specifies a full path to a daemon ad file dropped by a condor_schedd. Therefore this allows submission to a specific scheduler if several are available without repeatedly querying the condor_collector. The value for this argument defaults to the configuration attribute SCHEDD_DAEMON_AD_FILE . -schedd-address-file FileName Specifies a full path to an address file dropped by a condor_schedd. Therefore this allows submission to a specific scheduler if several are available without repeatedly querying the condor_collector. The value for this argument defaults to the configuration attribute SCHEDD_ADDRESS_FILE . -suppress_notification Causes jobs submitted by condor_dagmanto not send email notification for events. The same effect can be achieved by setting configuration variable DAGMAN_SUPPRESS_NOTIFICATION to True . This command line option is independent of the -notificationcommand line option, which controls notification for the condor_dagmanjob itself. -dont_suppress_notification Causes jobs submitted by condor_dagmanto defer to content within the submit description file when deciding to send email notification for events. The same effect can be achieved by setting configuration variable DAGMAN_SUPPRESS_NOTIFICATION to False . This command line flag is independent of the -notificationcommand line option, which controls notification for the condor_dagmanjob itself. If both -dont_suppress_notificationand -suppress_notificationare specified with the same command line, the last argument is used.
condor_submit_dagwill exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.
