Re: [Condor-users] retrieving output subdirectories

I've used something similar under Condor-G which doesn't( didn't ?) have

this functionality. I create a time stamp file before the start of

application then after running the app use


$ find -newer time_stamp_file_name


to work out which files have been created/modified and transfer them back. If

you use DAGman then a POST script could automatically unzip/untar the output on the

submit host to make things easier.

Hi Javier,

  I have the same problem as you, what i'm planning to do is wrap the application in a .bat file or .sh if on unix and after the jobs is complete juste zip everything and tell condor to retrived the zip file.

Hi, all... I'm trying to run an application in Condor which creates an
output subdirectory and write output files on it. I know that Condor has
the feature of retrieving (and sending back to submit node) only the
output files created/modified in the plain execute directory at the
corresponding execute node.

Is there any way to cope with this? I've browsed the archives at the
mailing list, but I only find messages telling that it is a well-known
issue, and the solution is to modify the application or writing a custom
wrapper for condor to tar (and maybe gzip) the output subdirectory/ies.

Since I cannot modify the application, where can I find documentation to
write such a custrom wrapper for condor?

Thanks a lot,
