I'd be interested in finding out if that was possible.

I don't see why it wouldn't work, though obviously the mail messages
aren't the most parse-friendly pieces of data.

Another option is to use DAGMan with a POST script for each job to
submit your jobs. You can have a very wide DAG with no parent-child
relationships, and your jobs basically run just as before.

Another option is to tail the job logfile yourself, and when you see a
terminate event you can do whatever you want. (Tailing the logfile is
how DAGMan works) If you use the Condor Perl module, you can register
a perl subroutine as a callback and it will take care of the tailing
for you, and you can register different callbacks on different sorts
of exits (one callback for exit with success, a callback for exit with
failure, a callback for evicted, etc). The only bummer about the perl
module is you have to let the perl module do the submitting (again,
like DAGMan.)

I have a question on Condor Call back mechanism.
When it finishes a job, it can send email  that  the job is done. But is it
possible to take some other action like "executing a shell script" or
putting a message in MQ.
Basically we like to do some thing other than just getting email when the
job is complete by Condor.
Is there any way to achieve this ?
