condor_ dagman

meta scheduler of the jobs submitted as the nodes of a DAG or DAGs

Synopsis

condor_ dagman [-debug level] [-rescue filename] [-maxidle numberOfJobs] [-maxjobs numberOfJobs] [-maxpre NumberOfPREscripts] [-maxpost NumberOfPOSTscripts] [-noeventchecks] [-allowlogerror] [-usedagdir] (-condorlog filename | -storklog filename) -lockfile filename [-waitfordebug] -dag dag_file [-dag dag_file_2 ... -dag dag_file_n ]

Description

condor_ dagman is a meta scheduler for the Condor jobs within a DAG (directed acyclic graph) (or multiple DAGs). In typical usage, a submitter of jobs that are organized into a DAG submits the DAG using condor_ submit_dag. condor_ submit_dag does error checking on aspects of the DAG and then submits condor_ dagman as a Condor job. condor_ dagman uses log files to coordinate the further submission of the jobs within the DAG.

As part of daemoncore, the set of command-line arguments given in section 3.9.2 work for condor_ dagman.

Arguments to condor_ dagman are either automatically set by condor_ submit_dag or they are specified as command-line arguments to condor_ submit_dag and passed on to condor_ dagman. The method by which the arguments are set is given in their description below.

condor_ dagman can run multiple, independent DAGs. This is done by specifying multiple -dag arguments. Pass multiple DAG input files as command-line arguments to condor_ submit_dag.

Debugging output may be obtained by using the -debug level option. Level values and what they produce is described as

Options

-debug level
An integer level of debugging output. level is an integer, with values of 0-7 inclusive, where 7 is the most verbose output. This command-line option to condor_ submit_dag is passed to condor_ dagman or defaults to the value 3, as set by condor_ submit_dag.
-rescue filename
Sets the file name of the rescue DAG to write in the case of a failure. As passed by condor_ submit_dag, the name of the file will be the name of the DAG input file concatenated with the string .rescue.
-maxidle NumberOfJobs
Sets the maximum number of idle jobs allowed before condor_ dagman stops submitting more jobs. Once idle jobs start to run, condor_ dagman will resume submitting jobs. NumberOfJobs is a positive integer. This command-line option to condor_ submit_dag is passed to condor_ dagman. If not specified, the number of idle jobs is unlimited.
-maxjobs numberOfJobs
Sets the maximum number of jobs within the DAG that will be submitted to Condor at one time. numberOfJobs is a positive integer. This command-line option to condor_ submit_dag is passed to condor_ dagman. If not specified, the default number of jobs is unlimited.
-maxpre NumberOfPREscripts
Sets the maximum number of PRE scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPREScripts is a positive integer. This command-line option to condor_ submit_dag is passed to condor_ dagman. If not specified, the default number of PRE scripts is unlimited.
-maxpost NumberOfPOSTscripts
Sets the maximum number of POST scripts within the DAG that may be running at one time. NumberOfPOSTScripts is a positive integer. This command-line option to condor_ submit_dag is passed to condor_ dagman. If not specified, the default number of POST scripts is unlimited.
-noeventchecks
This argument is no longer used; it is now ignored. Its functionality is now implemented by the DAGMAN_ALLOW_EVENTS configuration macro (see section 3.3.23).
-allowlogerror
This optional argument has condor_ dagman try to run the specified DAG, even in the case of detected errors in the user log specification.
-usedagdir
This optional argument has causes condor_ dagman to run each specified DAG as if the directory containing that DAG file was the current working directory. This option is most useful when running multiple DAGs in a single condor_ dagman.
-storklog filename
Sets the file name of the Stork log for data placement jobs.
-condorlog filename
Sets the file name of the file used in conjunction with the -lockfile filename in determining whether to run in recovery mode.
-lockfile filename
Names the file created and used as a lock file. The lock file prevents execution of two of the same DAG, as defined by a DAG input file. A default lock file ending with the suffix .dag.lock is passed to condor_ dagman by condor_ submit_dag.
-waitfordebug
This optional argument causes condor_ dagman to wait at startup until someone attaches to the process with a debugger and sets the wait_for_debug variable in main_init() to false.
-dag filename
filename is the name of the DAG input file that is set as an argument to condor_ submit_dag, and passed to condor_ dagman.

Exit Status

condor_ dagman will exit with a status value of 0 (zero) upon success, and it will exit with the value 1 (one) upon failure.

Examples

condor_ dagman is normally not run directly, but submitted as a Condor job by running condor_ submit_dag . See the condor_ submit_dag manual page [*] for examples.
