Re: [Condor-users] DAGMan debug levels

Could you give some details about the debug levels of DAGMan? The docs don't say much about specific levels.


The higher the debug level, the more info you get. ;)

To be a bit more helpful, here are the internal names corresponding to each debug level:

  /** NEVER output, except for usage info */ DEBUG_SILENT  = 0,
  /** Very quiet, only severe errors */      DEBUG_QUIET   = 1,
  /** Normal output, errors and warnings */  DEBUG_NORMAL  = 2,
  /** Errors, and all warnings */            DEBUG_VERBOSE = 3,
  /** Basic debug output */                  DEBUG_DEBUG_1 = 4,
  /** Outer Loop Debug */                    DEBUG_DEBUG_2 = 5,
  /** Inner Loop Debug */                    DEBUG_DEBUG_3 = 6,
  /** Rarely Used Debug */                   DEBUG_DEBUG_4 = 7,

I'll see about briefly documenting these in the next release -- thanks for pointing out that they're missing.

In practice, unless you're a debugging DAGMan internals, anything higher than "3" (DEBUG_VERBOSE) is not going to be helpful. I'd recommend DEBUG_VERBOSE for normal use, because it's nice for post-mortem analysis if anything goes wrong with DAGMan. I'd only lower it if the logs get too big.
