Re: [Condor-users] Getting Failed Jobs to Restart

Yes, but what if the job fails do to some internal exception - ie
uncaught exception in c++. Can Condor do anything there? I noticed
that in the standard universe, if I sent a running process sigkill
condor would register it as idle and then restart it in the next
negotiation cycle.

Can this be done in the standard universe?

Thanks for the response Jamie.
