condor_ vacate

Vacate jobs that are running on the specified hosts

Synopsis

condor_ vacate [-help | -version]

condor_ vacate [-graceful | -fast] [-debug] [-pool centralmanagerhostname[:portnumber] | -name hostname ]| [-addr "<a.b.c.d:port>"] ... [ | -all]

Description

condor_ vacate causes Condor to checkpoint any running jobs on a set of machines and force the jobs to vacate the machine. The job(s) remains in the submitting machine's job queue.

Given the (default) -graceful option, a job running under the standard universe will first produce a checkpoint and then the job will be killed. Condor will then restart the job somewhere else, using the checkpoint to continue from where it left off. A job running under the vanilla universe is killed, and Condor restarts the job from the beginning somewhere else. condor_ vacate has no effect on a machine with no Condor job currently running.

There is generally no need for the user or administrator to explicitly run condor_ vacate. Condor takes care of jobs in this way automatically following the policies given in configuration files.

-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

Exit Status

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

Examples

To send a condor_ vacate command to two named machines:
% condor_vacate  robin cardinal

To send the condor_ vacate command to a machine within a pool of machines 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 sends the command to a the single machine named cae17 within the pool of machines that has condor.cae.wisc.edu as its central manager:

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