       arcsync - ARC Synchronize


       The  arcsync  command  synchronizes  your  local jobs list with the information at a given
       cluster or index server.


       arcsync [options]


       -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

       -g, --index=name
              select  one or more registries: name can be an alias for a single registry, a group
              of registries or a URL

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

       -f, --force
              don't ask for verification

       -T, --truncate
              shrinks the joblist before synchronizing

       -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


       The ARC user interface keeps a local list of active jobs in the users home directory  (see
       arcsub(1)).  If  this  file is lost, or the user wants to recreate the file on a different
       computer,the arcsync command can be  used  to  recreate  the  file  from  the  information
       available the specified cluster or index server.

       Since  the information about a job retrieved from a cluster can be slightly out of date if
       the user very recently submitted or removed a job a warning is issued when this command is
       run. The --force option disables this warning.

       The  --cluster  options can be used to select or reject clusters that should be considered
       in the synchronization. This options can be repeated several times.  See arcsub(1)  for  a
       discussion of the format of arguments to this option.

       If the joblist is not empty when invoking synchronization the old jobs will be merged with
       the new jobs, unless the --truncate option is given, in which case the joblist will  first
       be cleaned of old jobs and then the new jobs will be added.


              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  is  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).
