Re: [Condor-users] Windows - getting back data files after condor_rm?


Is the intermediate data dropped to a file or redirected to stdout? 
If it's the latter, then you can use streaming I/O to see the
progress of stdout.  If it's the former, you might suggest that the
job be run by a batch file, that dumps the intermediate files to
stdout, independent of any errors the executable runs into, then
follow the same procedure described above, using streaming I/O.

Hi All
We have a situation where a user has a very small percentage of jobs
running "forever". He has precompiled code and does not have access to alter
The job does, however, print out intermediate data files. He would like
to see and retrieve these files as it would let him see what the problem
is. Is there a way for him to get these files back when the job is killed?
The docs seem promising, talking about files coming back to the submit
machine spool area when tansfer is set to on_exit_or_on_evict but we
are not having much luck. Is there a way to do this?
