Daresbury Laboratory Condor Pool

Line: 56 to 56
  1. "chown -R condor:condor /opt/condor/local.$(HOSTNAME) /opt/condor/etc/condor_config". I've created a script to copy the examples and do this part of the setup and it also does the soft link mentioned above.
  2. Do "/etc/init.d/condor start" and sit back. You can access the Web site at http://tardis.dl.ac.uk/Condor to check the status or do "condor_status -pool condor-main.dl.ac.uk"
  3. Don't forget to put ntpd on the machine too for any distributed computing activity.

Using and Testing

Need to source /opt/condor/condor.sh in user's environment somewhere. On some machines we set it in /etc/profile.

Some useful condor commands include:

condor_submit -- submits a job

condor_q -- see your own jobs

condor_q -g -- see all jobs

condor_rm -- kill a job

condor_q -better-analyze -- find out why a job isn't running

A sample job submission script which includes file transfer stuff and submits a linux job from a linux node is:

universe = vanilla
should_transfer_files = YES
when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT
requirements = ( Arch=="X86_64") && ( OpSys=="LINUX" )
executable = hostname.sh
output = host.out
error = host.err
log = host.log
notification = Error

Note: executable must be executable!
