condor_ fetchlog [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]] [-master | -startd | -schedd | -collector | -negotiator | -kbdd] machine-name subsystem[.extension]
condor_ fetchlog contacts Condor running on the machine specified by machine-name, and asks it to return a log file from that machine. Which log file is determined from the subsystem[.extension] argument. The log file is printed to standard output. This command eliminates the need to remotely log in to a machine in order to retrieve a daemon's log file.
For security purposes of authentication and authorization, this command requires an administrator's level of access. See section 3.6.1 on page for more details about Condor's security mechanisms.
The subsystem[.extension] argument is utilized to construct the log file's name. Without an optional .extension, the value of the configuration variable named subsystem_LOG defines the log file's name. When specified, the .extension is appended to this value.
Acceptable strings for the argument subsystem are as given as possible values of the predefined configuration variable $(SUBSYSTEM). See the definition in section 3.3.1.
A value for the optional .extension argument may be one of the three strings:
<X>is substituted with the number of the virtual machine.
condor_fetchlog head.example.com NEGOTIATOR
To get the condor_ startd daemon's log from a host named execute.example.com from within the current pool:
condor_fetchlog execute.example.com STARTD
This command requested the condor_ startd daemon's log from the condor_ master. If the condor_ master has crashed or is unresponsive, ask another daemon running on that computer to return the log. For example, ask the condor_ startd daemon to return the condor_ master's log:
condor_fetchlog -startd execute.example.com MASTER
