       condor_offshuts  down  a  set  of  the  HTCondor  daemons  running on a set of one or more
       machines. It does this cleanly so  that  checkpointable  jobs  may  gracefully  exit  with
       minimal loss of work.

       The   command   condor_offwithout   any  arguments  will  shut  down  all  daemons  except
       condor_master. The condor_mastercan then handle both local and remote requests to  restart
       the  other  HTCondor daemons if need be. To restart HTCondor running on a machine, see the

       With the  -daemon  masteroption,  condor_offwill  shut  down  all  daemons  including  the
       condor_master.  Specification  using  the  -daemonoption will shut down only the specified

       For  security  reasons  of  authentication  and  authorization,  this   command   requires
       ADMINISTRATOR level of access.

       To shut down all daemons (other than condor_master) on the local host:

       % condor_off

       To shut down only the condor_collectoron three named machines:

       % condor_off   cinnamon cloves vanilla -daemon collector

       To  shut  down  daemons  within  a  pool  of  machines  other than the local pool, use the
       -pooloption. The argument is the name of the central manager for the pool. Note  that  one
       or  more  machines  within the pool must be specified as the targets for the command. This
       command shuts down all  daemons  except  the  condor_masteron  the  single  machine  named
       cae17within the pool of machines that has condor.cae.wisc.eduas its central manager:

       % condor_off   -pool -name cae17
