Re: [Condor-users] running a job on localhost

You can try:

Machine == $ENV(HOSTNAME)

Where HOSTNAME is something suitable in your environment to reference as the name of the machine you're submitting from.

You might also want to take a look at the local universe jobs: http://research.cs.wisc.edu/condor/manual/v7.6/2_4Road_map_Running.html#1893

Jobs submitted with:

universe = local

run alongside the scheduler they're submitted from. The job requirements get evaluated against the scheduler's classad and the jobs run under the control of a condor_starter.

Hi condor users, I am trying to figure out how to run a submitted job on the submit machine. I know, I don’t really have to use condor to do that. But its part of a pipeline and I think it will be cleaner if I could put in a requirement such as Machine==$localhost. Does condor support a localhost variable? I’d rather not hardcode the machine name. thanks!
