One of my users, today, asked if it was possible to get an email when a job is
placed on hold due to a failure of some sort? They are using the job options
to cause it to remain in the queue at that point.
As far as I can see this isn't presently supported; is that correct?
The good news:
I believe you will get email if you put in your submit description file
notification = always
notify_user = email_address@xxxxxxxxxxxx
The bad news:
With notification=always, however, you'll also get email lots of other
times (when job run, completes, etc). It'd be nice if you got email
when/if the job is placed on hold if
notification = error
but I am not sure that will always happen because I think Condor's
interpretation of what is an "error" right now is very strict (aka just
if the job dies abnormally w/ a signal and/or a handful of unrecoverable
errors attempting to launch the job like bad permissions).
What do others think? Should we make a change so that the user always
gets email if the job goes in hold when notification=error?
