|The name of the log file to watch for information about the job.|
|A specific job or set of jobs to watch. If the job ID is only the job ClassAd attribute ClusterId , then condor_wait waits for all jobs with the given ClusterId . If the job ID is a pair of the job ClassAd attributes, given by ClusterId . ProcId , then condor_wait waits for the specific job with this job ID . If this option is not specified, all jobs that exist in the log file when condor_wait is invoked will be watched.|
condor_wait is an inexpensive way to test or wait for the completion of a job or a whole cluster, if you are trying to get a process outside of HTCondor to synchronize with a job or set of jobs.
It can also be used to wait for the completion of a limited subset of jobs, via the -num option.
This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfile to complete.
condor_wait logfile 40
This command waits for all jobs that exist in logfile with a job ClassAd attribute ClusterId of 40 to complete.
condor_wait -num 2 logfile
This command waits for any two jobs that exist in logfile to complete.
condor_wait logfile 40.1
This command waits for job 40.1 that exists in logfile to complete.
condor_wait -wait 3600 logfile 40.1
This waits for job 40.1 to complete by watching logfile , but it will not wait more than one hour (3600 seconds).
condor_wait exits with 0 if and only if the specified job or jobs have completed or aborted. condor_wait returns 1 if unrecoverable errors occur, such as a missing log file, if the job does not exist in the log file, or the user-specified waiting time has expired.
