       arccat - ARC Catenate


       The  arccat command can be used to view the stdout or stderr of a running job. It can also
       be used to show A-REX's error log of a job.

       -a, --all
              all jobs

       -j, --joblist=filename

       -c, --cluster=name

       -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

       -o, --stdout
              show the stdout of the job (default)

       job ...
              list of jobids and/or jobnames


       The  arccat  command displays the stdout or stderr of running jobs. It can also display A-
       REX's error log of a job. 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  stdout,  stderr or A-REX error log 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 stdout, stderr or A-REX error log of all active jobs
       will be shown.

       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
       times. See arstat(1) for possible state values.

       Only jobs where the stdout or stderr argument was given in the job description can display
       the contents of those files.


              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).
