I am facing some problem in running jobs on Condor while submitting job from

Well, I have installed condor on linux machine and configured as well.

I submit job using
$ condor_submit submit

content of 'submit' file is:

Universe = vanilla
Executable = simple
Arguments = 4 10
Log = simple.log
Output = simple.out
Error = simple.error

it is able to create simple.log, simple.out and simple.error, but no content
in simple.out and simple.error

4 jobs; 4 idle, 0 running, 0 held

the state is idle for several hours... with no changes,
hey can i use the machine on which the job for other purpose, or that
machine has to remain idle i.e. no other work should be done !?!

Then, I realized that machine should be left idle, so i left the machine
idle for few hours. To my surprise the job did executed. But what came to
surprise that, whenever I query the machine, it always says that job is idle
and not running.

Please tell me how should i solve the above problem, I just need job should
be in run state and give the output and not remain in idle state...

hope u can help me ,


Look the output of the condor_q -analyze JOB_NUMBER
replace JOB_NUMBER with 14, 15, 16 and 17. It should show you what is going on.
