As Erik indicated, the classad for the slot has information on load and
time in current state.  You can see nearly everything Condor knows about
a machine in the long listing of its classad:

  condor_status -l [machine_name]


  condor_status -l slotN@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

for the detailed listing of a single slot on the machine.

I have the RHEL5 dynamic tarball installed on my Ubuntu machines, and
everything, including the standard universe, seems to work.

You have access to nearly all of the information about a job through the
long listing of its classad:

  condor_q -l [job_number]

You can grep for the bit you want like so:

  $ condor_q -l 15852.0 | grep -i restart
  NumRestarts = 0

There is also a job monitor app here, which may give you at least part
of what you need.  I haven't tried it for several versions of Condor,
but it may still work.

My config files are in an NFS-mounted directory, shared by all machines.

In the config file:


##  What users do you want to grant super user access to this job
##  queue?  (These users will be able to remove other user's jobs). 
##  By default, this only includes root.
