[Condor-users] Multi-query for completed jobs
I want to determine programatically (in C) if any job of a number of
jobs is completed / failed. I have a list of the job names, as well as
according log files. Currently I see three possibilities for doing this:
1.) Go iteratively through all logfiles and search for the "Finish"
term. This might be optimized by checking the modification time of the
2.) Ask iteratively condor_history until it finds at least one job to be
completed. It is possible to give multiple job ID's to condor_history in
the query ("-constraint"), but with a large set of jobs I might run into
a problem with the maximum length of a command line.
3.) Ask iteratively condor_q and wait until at least one of the jobs is
removed from the queue.
I experienced some bad performance with condor_history in Condor
6.7.12., some maybe number 1 is the most appropriate solution ? Any
other ideas ?
