       arcstat - ARC Status


       The  arcstat  command is used for obtaining the status of jobs that have been submitted to
       grid enabled resources.


       arcstat [options] [job ...]


       -a, --all
              all jobs

       -j, --joblist=filename
              the file storing information about active jobs (default ~/.arc/jobs.xml)

       -i, --jobids-from-file=filename
              a file containing a list of jobIDs

       -c, --cluster=name
              select one or more computing elements: name can be an alias  for  a  single  CE,  a
              group of CEs or a URL

       -r, --rejectmanagement=URL
              skip jobs which are on a computing element with a given URL

       -s, --status=statusstr
              only select jobs whose status is statusstr

       -l, --long
              long format (more information)

       -S, --sort
              sort jobs according to jobid, submissiontime or jobname

       -R, --rsort
              reverse sorting of jobs according to jobid, submissiontime or jobname

       -u, --show-unavailable
              show jobs where status information is unavailable

       -p, --print-jobids
              instead of the status only the IDs of the selected jobs will be printed

       -P, --listplugins
              list the available plugins

       -t, --timeout=seconds
              timeout in seconds (default 20)

       -z, --conffile=filename
              configuration file (default ~/.arc/client.conf)

       -d, --debug=debuglevel

       -v, --version
              print version information

       -?, --help
              print help


       job ...
              list of jobids and/or jobnames


       The arcstat command gives the status of a job submitted to a ARC enabled resource. The job
       can be referred to either by the jobid that was returned by arcsub(1) at  submission  time
       or by its jobname if the job description that was submitted contained a jobname attribute.

       More  than  one jobid and/or jobname can be given. If several jobs were submitted with the
       same jobname the status of all those jobs are shown. If the --joblist option is  used  the
       list  of  jobs  is  read  from a file with the specified filename. By specifying the --all
       option, the status of all active jobs will be shown.

       By default arcstat presents job  states  as  defined  internally  followed  by  middleware
       specific  representation  of  job state in brackets. The following internal job states are

       Accepted - job accepted on cluster but not being processed yet

       Preparing - job is in phase of preparing for submission to batch system

       Submitting - communication with batch system in ongoing

       Hold - job's processing is suspended dueto internal reason or user request

       Queuing - job is passed to batch system but not being executed yet

       Running - job being execcuted in batch system

       Finishing - job in phase of post-execution procedures being run

       Finished - job successfully completed all processing phases

       Killed - job processing was interrupted by user request

       Failed - job processing was interrupted due to detected failure

       Deleted - job was removed from cluster (usually because it stayed there too long)

       Other - middleware specific job state could not be adequately mappped to internal state

       Those are also states which are used by  arccat(1),  arcclean(1),  arcget(1),  arckill(1),
       arcrenew(1), arcresub(1), arcresume(1) to perform job filtering.

       If the --long option is given more detailed information is shown.

       Jobs  can be sorted according to the jobid, submissiontime or jobname, either in normal or
       reverse order. By using the --sort or --rsort option  followed  by  the  desired  ordering
       ('jobid',  'submissiontime' or 'jobname'), jobs will be sorted in normal or reverse order.
       Note that the options --sort and --rsort cannot be used at the same time.

       The --cluster option can be used to select  or  reject  jobs  at  specific  clusters.  See
       arcsub(1)  for a discussion of the format of arguments to this option. The --status option
       can be used to select jobs in a specific state. These  options  can  be  repeated  several

       The  arcstat command locates the available clusters by querying information index servers.
       Which servers to query can be specified by giving the --index option to the  command.  See
       arcsub(1) for a discussion of the format of arguments to this option.

       Also in this case the --long option can be used to obtain more detailed information.

       Previously the arcstat command was also used to query information of clusters and/or index
       servers.  This functionality have been moved to the new command arcinfo


              Some options can be given default values by  specifying  them  in  the  ARC  client
              configuration  file.  By using the --conffile option a different configuration file
              can be used than the default.

              This a local list of the user's active jobs. When a job is  successfully  submitted
              it  is  added  to  this  list  and when it is removed from the remote cluster it is
              removed from this list. This list is used as the list of all active jobs  when  the
              user  specifies  the  --all  option  to  the  various  NorduGrid ARC user interface
              commands. By using the --joblist option a different  file  can  be  used  than  the


              The location of the user's Grid proxy file. Shouldn't be set unless the proxy is in
              a non-standard location.

              The location where ARC is installed can be  specified  by  this  variable.  If  not
              specified  the  install  location  will  be determined from the path to the command
              being executed, and if this fails a WARNING will  be  given  stating  the  location
              which will be used.

              The  location  of ARC plugins can be specified by this variable. Multiple locations
              can be specified by separating them by : (; in Windows). The  default  location  is
              $ARC_LOCATION/lib/arc (\ in Windows).
