condor_wait Wait - for jobs to finish
condor_wait [-help -version] condor_wait[-debug] [-status] [-echo] [-wait seconds] [-num number-of-jobs] log-file[job ID]
condor_waitwatches a job event log file (created with the logcommand within a submit description file) and returns when one or more jobs from the log have completed or aborted. Because condor_waitexpects to find at least one job submitted event in the log file, at least one job must have been successfully submitted with condor_submitbefore condor_waitis executed. condor_waitwill wait forever for jobs to finish, unless a shorter wait time is specified.
-help Display usage information -version Display version information -debug Show extra debugging information. -status Show job start and terminate information. -echo Print the events out to stdout . -wait seconds Wait no more than the integer number of seconds. The default is unlimited time. -num number-of-jobs Wait for the integer number-of-jobsjobs to end. The default is all jobs in the log file. log file The name of the log file to watch for information about the job. job ID A specific job or set of jobs to watch. If the job IDis only the job ClassAd attribute ClusterId , then condor_wait waits for all jobs with the given ClusterId . If the job IDis a pair of the job ClassAd attributes, given by ClusterId . ProcId , then condor_wait waits for the specific job with this job ID. If this option is not specified, all jobs that exist in the log file when condor_wait is invoked will be watched.
condor_waitis an inexpensive way to test or wait for the completion of a job or a whole cluster, if you are trying to get a process outside of HTCondor to synchronize with a job or set of jobs. It can also be used to wait for the completion of a limited subset of jobs, via the -numoption.
condor_wait logfile This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfile to complete. condor_wait logfile 40 This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfile with a job ClassAd attribute ClusterId of 40 to complete. condor_wait -num 2 logfile This command waits for any two jobs that exist in logfile to complete. condor_wait logfile 40.1 This command waits for job 40.1 that exists in logfile to complete. condor_wait -wait 3600 logfile 40.1 This waits for job 40.1 to complete by watching logfile , but it will not wait more than one hour (3600 seconds).
condor_waitexits with 0 if and only if the specified job or jobs have completed or aborted. condor_waitreturns 1 if unrecoverable errors occur, such as a missing log file, if the job does not exist in the log file, or the user-specified waiting time has expired.
