       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

       -C, --convert
              instead of pulling jobs information from server read it from jobs storage and write
              it back. This option is mostly for converting format of jobs storage file.

       -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       Since the information about a job retrieved from a cluster can be slightly out of date  if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).
