condor_ reconfig

Reconfigure Condor daemons

Synopsis

condor_ reconfig [-help | -version]

condor_ reconfig [-debug] [-name hostname | hostname | -addr "<a.b.c.d:port>" | "<a.b.c.d:port>" ... ]| [-all]
[-subsystem master | startd | schedd | collector | negotiator | kbdd | quill] [-full]

condor_ reconfig [-debug] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber] | -name hostname ]| [-addr "<a.b.c.d:port>"] ... [ | -all]
[-subsystem master | startd | schedd | collector | negotiator | kbdd | quill] [-full]

Description

condor_ reconfig reconfigures all of the Condor daemons in accordance with the current status of the Condor configuration file(s). Once reconfiguration is complete, the daemons will behave according to the policies stated in the configuration file(s). The main exception is with the DAEMON_LIST variable, which will only be updated if the condor_ restart command is used. There are a few other configuration settings that can only be changed if the Condor daemons are restarted. Whenever this is the case, it will be mentioned in section 3.3 on page [*] which lists all of the settings used to configure Condor. In general, condor_ reconfig should be used when making changes to the configuration files, since it is faster and more efficient than restarting the daemons.

The command condor_ reconfig with no arguments or with the -subsystem master option will cause the reconfiguration of the condor_ master daemon and all the child processes of the condor_ master.

For security purposes (authentication and authorization), this command requires an administrator's level of access. Note that changes to the ALLOW_* and DENY_* configuration variables require the -full option. See section 3.6.1 on page [*] for further explanation.

Options

-help
Display usage information
-version
Display version information
-full
Perform a full reconfiguration. In addition to re-reading the configuration files, a full reconfiguration will clear cached DNS information in the daemons. Use this option only when the DNS information needs to be reinitialized.
-debug
Causes debugging information to be sent to stderr based on the value of the configuration variable TOOL_DEBUG
-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber]
Specify a pool by giving the central manager's hostname and an optional port number
-name hostname
Send the command to a machine identified by hostname
hostname
Send the command to a machine identified by hostname
-addr "<a.b.c.d:port>"
Send the command to a machine's master located at "<a.b.c.d:port>"
"<a.b.c.d:port>"
Send the command to a machine located at "<a.b.c.d:port>"
-all
Send the command to all machines in the pool
-subsystem master | startd | schedd | collector | negotiator | kbdd | quill
Send the command to the named daemon. Without this option, the command is sent to the condor_ master daemon.

Exit Status

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

Examples

To reconfigure the condor_ master and all its children on the local host:
% condor_reconfig

To reconfigure only the condor_ startd on a named machine:

% condor_reconfig -name bluejay -subsystem startd

To reconfigure a machine within a pool other than the local pool, use the -pool option. 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 reconfigures the single machine named cae17 within the pool of machines that has condor.cae.wisc.edu as its central manager:

% condor_reconfig -pool condor.cae.wisc.edu -name cae17
