       condor_master The - master HTCondor Daemon




       This  daemon  is  responsible  for keeping all the rest of the HTCondor daemons running on
       each machine in your pool. It spawns the other daemons, and periodically checks to see  if
       there  are  new  binaries  installed  for any of them. If there are, the condor_masterwill
       restart the affected daemons. In addition, if any daemon  crashes,  the  condor_masterwill
       send  e-mail  to  the  HTCondor  Administrator  of  your  pool and restart the daemon. The
       condor_masteralso supports various administrative commands that let  you  start,  stop  or
       reconfigure  daemons remotely. The condor_masterwill run on every machine in your HTCondor
       pool, regardless of what functions each machine are  performing.  Additionally,  on  Linux
       platforms,  if  you  start  the  condor_masteras  root,  it will tune (but never decrease)
       certain kernel parameters important to HTCondor's performance.

       The  DAEMON_LIST configuration macro is used by the condor_masterto provide a  per-machine
       list of daemons that should be started and kept running. For daemons that are specified in
       the   DC_DAEMON_LIST  configuration  macro,  the  condor_masterdaemon  will   spawn   them
       automatically  appending  a  -fargument.  For  those  listed  in  DAEMON_LIST , but not in
       DC_DAEMON_LIST , there will be no -fargument.


       -n name

          Provides an alternate name  for  the  condor_master  to  override  that  given  by  the
          MASTER_NAME configuration variable.
