Re: [Condor-users] nfs and condor

I am very curious about the condor_transfer_files tricks. Ideally,
write to local drives and then tranfsfer the files back to submit host
or place them back into NFS.

Most of us see stdout and stderr when we submit jobs and look at their
progress. Would be still be able to do that with condor_transfer_files
