       arcget - ARC Get


       The arcget command is used for retrieving the results from a job.


       arcget [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

       -D, --dir=dirname
              download directory (the job directory will be created in this directory)

       -J, --usejobname
              use the jobname instead of the short ID as the job directory name

       -k, --keep
              keep files on the remote cluster (do not clean)

       -f, --force
              force download (overwrite existing job directory)

       -P, --listplugins
              list the available plugins

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

       -z, --conffile=filename

       -d, --debug=debuglevel

       job ...
              list of jobids and/or jobnames


       The arcget command downloads the results after a job has  completed  on  an  grid  enabled
       computing resource. Only the results of jobs that have finished can be downloaded. 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 results of all those jobs are downloaded. 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 results of all active jobs are downloaded.

       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.

       For  each  job that is downloaded a subdirectory will be created in the download directory
       that will contain the downloaded files.

       If the download was successful the job will be removed from the remote cluster unless  the
       --keep option was specified.


              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).
